Coroners Inquest Reports Concerning Deaths

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.

Coroners Inquisition Files

The files relate to Coroners Inquests o unnatural, sudden or suspicious deaths. A standard file will include a Coroners Inquistion (i.e. the certified statement of the Coroners decision as to the cause of death); and the Coroners Officers Report concerning the death, with associated medical and police reports, statements of witnesses etc. All dates relate to the date of the Inquest.
