Inquest hearings

Date updated: 6/01/2023

Following the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions, all inquest hearings have resumed. To encourage safe and responsible behaviour as the primary means of stopping the spread of the virus, some inquests are being heard remotely. Anyone wishing to attend an inquest in person, including members of the public or press, should contact the court in advance, preferably by email, so that appropriate arrangements can be made to provide access. Those directly involved (Interested Persons, witnesses, and legal representatives) will be contacted by the court concerning the necessary arrangements.

We are progressing 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.

Future inquest hearings

Inquest hearings scheduled at the City of London Coroner's Court will be published when they are confirmed. Inquests with a jury are listed as 'Inquest with a jury.'
