Inquests

COVID-19 EMERGENCY ARRANGEMENTS

Please note all Inquests are subject to alteration

Currently there is no suitable accommodation for inquests to take place which require personal attendance. Inquests can only take place if there is no personal attendance and/or anyone wishing to be present is able to join by telephone/Skype or the like.

Otherwise the inquests will be adjourned until after the pandemic emergency has passed.

If you unsure of an inquest listing or have an interest, please contact us on: 01743 258470 or by email: coroner@shropshire.gov.uk

MEDIA - if you require any information for Inquest openings or Fast Tracks please email: coroner@shropshire.gov.uk

On this page you'll find the details of upcoming inquests in Shropshire. There may be occasions when it's in the interested person's interest – and the bereaved in particular - to hold the inquest quickly. This site should therefore be checked regularly in case an inquest has been listed at short notice.

Pre-inquest reviews

Pre-inquest reviews are public but there's likely to be a restriction on what can be reported to prevent any prejudice to the subsequent inquest. In appropriate cases the pre-inquest review may proceed to the inquest itself. If the pre-inquest review is by phone you should arrive ten minutes earlier in case of internal relocation of the review.
