Mortuary inspection and burial; application for permission to bury outside a cemetery.

As a rule, bodies and ashes of deceased persons must be buried in cemeteries. Permission for burial outside a cemetery may be requested in exceptional cases.



The prerequisite for granting permission for burial outside a cemetery is that the applicant can cite an important reason, the burial place complies with the burial law requirements, the maintenance of the burial place during the period of rest is ensured and overriding interests of third parties are not opposed. The existence of exceptional circumstances is required for the assumption of an important reason.


For permission to bury outside a cemetery, a written or electronic application must be submitted to the appropriate county administrative agency.
