Inquests

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 therefore should 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 telephone you should arrive ten minutes earlier in case of internal relocation of the review.
