Covid-19 Arrangements

With reference to the lifting of the Covid-19 restrictions on Monday 19th July 2021 please note:

  1. The requirement to wear a suitable face covering is no longer mandatory when attending the Coroners Court but encouraged.
  1. For fire safety reasons the limit of 20 persons to attending an inquest remains though attendance remotely or by telephone remains an option. 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 we can check availability. Please note that those persons attending will need to provide a valid contact telephone number for track & trace purposes.

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.
