Message from the Coroner service
Sadly, there has been a large volume of referrals made to the service since the New Year. Of course, we are aware that this means that a bereaved family is waiting to hear from us as to the next steps that they should take.
We will try to progress enquiries as quickly as we can and ensure we contact next of kin as soon as is possible. We must be diligent with each and every case that is referred to the Coroner and sometimes this can take some time.
Funeral directors, please can we politely request that you email the service for any query that you have. Thank you.
