The Coroners Society

The Coroners' Society has the following objects: 

  1. the promotion of the usefulness of the office of coroner to the public;
  2. the ascertainment in questions of difficulty of the duties which devolve on coroners;
  3. the advancement of such amendments to the law as seem desirable;
  4. the establishment and maintenance of contact with HM Government and the Chief Coroner; and
  5. the protection of the rights and interest of coroners


Coroners provide a local service to the community and more information can be found about the role of Coroners on the Ministry of Justice Website but see also Department for Constitutional Affairs Website

There is some useful information about attending inquests on the Coroners' Court Support Service Website - (though at this time this service, which is completely separate from the Society is only available in a few jurisdictions)

The Coroners' Society is not a regulatory body.

Telephone 0151 233 0135

(This number leads to a voicemail facility where messages including your name, phone number and message should be left. The messages will only be interrogated during office hours when jurisdiction duties permit - the society is run by working coroners so please be patient, as our duties to those affected by sudden and unexpected death must come first)
