Welcome to the Coroner Service Website

Home page image

The Coroner Service is a network of Coroners located throughout the country.

The Coroners' core function is to investigate sudden and unexplained deaths so that a death certificate can be issued. This is an important public service to the living and in particular to the next-of-kin and friends of the deceased.

The Coroner Service not only provides closure for those bereaved suddenly but also performs a wider public service by identifying matters of public interest that can have life/death consequences.
