Frequently Asked Questions

What is an inquest?

An inquest is a formal inquiry by a Coroner to determine how someone died and can involve a jury to decide the cause of death. The purpose of an inquest is to establish who, where, when and how a person died and is an investigation, not a trial or adversarial hearing. There is only an inquest under specific circumstances:

  • The death is violent or unatural
  • The cause of death is unknown
  • There is a legal requirement to investigate e.g. a death in prison, whilst sectioned.
