Coroners and inquests

The Coroner’s Office in Stoke-on-Trent & North Staffordshire is continuing to operate as normal although staff are now working from home in line with Government guidance with regard to COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
The Coroner’s office team are endeavoring to list inquests where it is possible to do so subject to the national guidelines around the pandemic.  All inquest hearings will be published on this site.  The court will continue to operate every day until further notice.  We will open inquests on Monday of each week. Please be aware that we will deal with certain fast track inquests to ensure the deceased can be released in a timely fashion as appropriate.  If you have an interest in a particular inquest please email your contact details along with the details of the deceased to coroners@stoke.gov.uk and my team will arrange to notify you when a hearing is listed.
We would appreciate your understanding and co-operation at this time.
