All inquest hearings (inquests and pre-inquest review hearings) listed between late March and the end of April 2020 were adjourned because of the current Covid-19 (Coronavirus) health crisis.
The majority of inquest hearings can now resume, without the physical attendance at court of participants. Those directly involved (Interested Persons, witnesses, and legal representatives) will be contacted by the court concerning the necessary arrangements.
Some hearings are held as "documentary inquests", which are inquests at which all the evidence is read. Other inquests where oral evidence is required, and pre-inquest review hearings, will be held with participants using audio visual software.
Anyone else wishing to attend a hearing, including members of the public or press, should contact the court in advance, preferably by email, so that appropriate arrangements can be made for access to be given.
We are working to progress inquest hearings as soon as is practicable. We are extremely sorry if any unavoidable delay causes distress to anyone involved. If anyone affected has any question or concern, please do not hesitate to contact the City of London Coroner's Office, preferably by email.
A list of forthcoming inquest hearings scheduled to be held at the City of London Coroner's Court appears below.
