I would be grateful for any independent recommendations of good local genealogists in Hungary to help me track a death record from about 80 years ago. Any body recommend anyone who works for a reasonable fee?

Thanks

Define "local". 80 years ago, Hungary was a much bigger place and was not split up until after WWI. The civil records are available online (only browseable) at familysearch.org but you will need to be able to narrow it down to a particular village or town.

Yes - I know (I'm a history teacher) - badly phrased I'm sorry. I meant in now in modern Hungary. I have found one but interested in any recommendations.

Just a suggestion but I joined up with Hungary Exchange on Facebook. It is a group that helps out anyone looking for help in searching for answers and advice. I have also used the group founder and hired him to do research on my Hungarian ancestors and am very happy with the results. If you are not on Facebook you can also check them out at http://www.HungaryExchange.com

There are several church archives, newspaper archives, digital libraries, as well as some regional state archives in (today) Hungary) that you can register with online and research vital and other records on your own - like this one - which is all you need if your ancestors were from southern region that was covered by the Kalocsa diocese :

Several yrs ago I used a company called "Galut Genealogical Research Bureau" & they did a wonderful job for me. They traced my family back more than 5 generations. Provided copies of all documents w/translations & copies from books of nobility referencing my family & picture of Coat of Arms. Their rates were very, very reasonable, I would not have traveled to Hungary & Slovakia or located all the info they provided for what they charged. I highly recommend them. You will not be disappointed.
