  • Collection
  • 1922 - 1945

Surviving records of the Coroner for the County Borough of Croydon. Collection consists of files of Inquests (COR/1) and Reports Concerning Deaths (COR/2).


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.

Coroners Inquisition Files: Birdhurst Rise Murders

Three files relating to the Birdhurst Rise murders: nos 128, Violet E. Sidney (March - July 1929), nos. 130 Vera Sidney (March - July 1929) and 132 Edmund C. Duff (second inquest, June - August 1929). The files are not complete: in particular, that for Edmund Duff contains only a few pages from witness statements, and the Coroners notes for his summing up.
