Who do I call if I have to plan a funeral in Copenhagen?

Usually one will leave all practical aspects in connection with deaths and funerals to an undertaker.

You can find a local undertaker by searching for undertaker (in Danish bedemand) on the internet. However, nothing prevents you from arranging a funeral or interment yourself.

If the funeral is to take place in the National Evangelical Lutheran Church (folkekirken), the deceased must be a member of folkekirken. Otherwise you can have a non-religious funeral.

Copenhagen Cemeteries' customer centre will readily advise you about it all.

Please call on phone: +45 33 66 91 00 weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
