Scope and content
These records cover deaths resulting in Coroners Inquests, and those resulting in enquiries only. In virtually all cases Coroners Inquisitions, and medical and police reports are missing, and only blue paper report sheets have survived. They give the name, age, occupation and address of the deceased, the time and place of death, and the anticipated date of inquest, and usually include statements by next of kin and witnesses. Many of the statements are incomplete.

Conditions governing access
Some of the records in our collections contain sensitive and personal data that we have a legal responsibility to control access to. In these circumstances, staff may search the collection on your behalf, having received consent or proof of death of the individual concerned.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information regarding the particular collection you wish to access.
You can make a request for information which may be in a closed record under the Freedom of Information Act, 2000 or the Environmental Information Regulations, 2004. For more information about making a request, see the Croydon Council website (www.croydon.gov.uk). Making a request does not guarantee access to the information you ask for, as there may be a valid exemption from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act.
