Hello Jessica,

I did a quick German online-research and didn't find explicit information on responsibilities. I would suggest that the family members write to the Bensheim Standesamt (registry office) describing the situation/request, they will surely know.
They will need to prove their legitimation (direct descendance) via a scan of an ID.

Kirchbergstraße 18

Good luck!
