Coronavirus (COVID-19) service update:
Coroners are sitting in open court for inquest hearings, but we have limited capacity for interested parties and members of the public to attend in person. Microsoft Teams is being used for all hearings so that interested parties and members of the press can participate in hearings remotely if necessary.
If you plan on attending, or if you would like access the Microsoft Teams meetings, please contact the Coroner Service on 0345 045 1364 ahead of time. Please do not turn up for a live hearing without checking with the Coroner Service first.
Coroners are required by law to investigate any sudden or unexplained death. They are independent of both local and central government and are required to act in accordance with laid down rules and procedures.
In most cases, no further action is required, and the death can be registered as normal. However, the Coroner may decide to hold an inquest to establish the facts.
The Guide to Coroner Services is primarily for bereaved people but others involved in or affected by a Coroner investigation or attending a Coroner's inquest may also find it helpful.
Please note that hearings may change at short notice (Adjourned). Please check the evening before a hearing is scheduled, for the most up to date information.
Any Inquests or Pre-Inquest Review Hearings that have been adjourned are displayed in the table below. These will be rescheduled with a new hearing data. (The date shown is the date the hearing was due to take place on).
The following table lists the Inquests and Pre-Inquest Review Hearings due to be held in the next 30 days.
