Coroner’s Court Support Service

An inquest can be a distressing experience for anyone involved. If you would like to speak to someone, by telephone or in person, the Coroner’s Court Support Service offer emotional support and practical advice about the inquest process. They can be contacted on Tel: 0300 111 2141.

Welcome to The West London Coroner site.

Coroners investigate deaths that have been reported to them if they think that the death was violent or unusual, the cause of death is unknown, or the person died in prison or another type of state detention.

When a death is reported to a coroner, they:

  • decide whether an investigation is needed; and if it is,
  • investigate to establish the identity of the deceased; how, when and where they died; and any information they need to register the death; and,
  • use the information discovered during the investigation to prevent other deaths.
