Inquest Reports

Can anyone tell me if their is a website that provides inquest reports? I have done a search, but only found references to various inquests, but not the actual report.

[Coroners Inquest Reports
The coroner was responsible for inquisitions into sudden or suspicious deaths. Bear in mind that the sensitive nature of these records means that they are closed to public access for 75 years. Information Sheet 9 : Coroners Records, shows the location of Coroners Records for Westminster, Marylebone and Paddington (PDF file). A full list of our holdings can be found in Section 13 – Courts of Law in our Guide to Holdings.]

If you are looking for recent Inquest reports, then I believe that you will need to approach the Coroners Court in whose locality the inquest took part in. Not all information will be available to the general public.

Would mention that the government, are looking into possible reform of the Coroner's Court and procedures.

If the inquest is of any particular importance, then the local area main newspaper may have information available.

Thanks for the responses. I am looking for an inquest regarding a fatal road accident. I will look at the area's newspaper's websites.

I think that if you can show a significant personal reason for requiring a copy of the coroner's report, a request to the coroner himself can be made, presumably via the coroner's office.

If you use the google news search and tie it down by date and location you will get most of the local papers reports.
However the reports of an inquest that I went to bore little resemblance to the stated facts.
