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.
This office is not open to the public.
