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 coroners office can be contacted on [email protected] or 0345 045 1364 (8am to 4pm Monday to Thursday, and 7.30am to 3.30pm on Fridays).
