Inquests

Covid-19 emergency arrangements

Following recent announcements by the government it has been possible to modify the restrictions in place regarding inquest hearings. On strict terms, it is possible for under 20 persons to attend an inquest though attendance remotely by telephone remains an option. For track & trace purposes we need the names of all those who wish to attend the inquest in person and you will be asked to provide a valid contact number which will be kept securely for 21 days.

Media – you are now allowed to attend in person

If anyone does wish to attend in person or by telephone, including the media, they should please contact us on 01743 258470 or by email coroner@shropshire.gov.uk at least 24 hours before the hearing, so that the terms, including social distancing at all times, can be maintained. Please note that those persons attending will need to provide a valid contact telephone number for track & trace purposes.

Please note anyone will now be required to wear a suitable face covering when attending the Coroners Court. This may be removed when speaking or giving evidence.

Inquests

Please note that all inquests are subject to alteration

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 should therefore 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 an internal relocation of the review.
