Coroner and inquests

Coronavirus (COVID-19) service update:

Please note that while Coroners are sitting in open court for inquest hearings, we have limited capacity for interested parties and members of the public to attend in person. Skype 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 Skype 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.

Please note that hearings may change at short notice. Please check this webpage the evening before a hearing is scheduled, for the most up to date information.

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.

The Coroner's Office can be contacted by email at coroners@cambridgeshire.gov.uk or by telephone on 0345 045 1364. Office opening hours are Monday to Thursday, 8am to 4pm, and Friday, 8am to 3.30pm.
