Inquests

If you have lost a loved one in circumstances that you don't fully understand we can help you with the questions you want to ask.

Inquests are held by a coroner in certain circumstances, particularly when a death has happened suddenly and it is unexplained. Inquests will also occur when the death is violent or unnatural. An inquest will always take place if the death occurred in prison or police custody.

A coroner’s duty is to find out how, when and where the deceased came by his or her death. It is not about blame; that is dealt with by others such as the civil and criminal courts.
