Inquests

An inquest is held to record:

  • who the deceased was
  • when, where and how he or she came by the medical cause of death 

When a conclusion is reached, the coroner records the details needed for the registration of the death.

An inquest does not determine any question of civil liability or criminal liability on the part of a named person.

Registration of Deaths

If the coroner decides that it is necessary for an inquest to be held, then the death will not be registered until the inquest has been completed, however an Interim Death Certificate will be issued by the coroner pending full registration.

At the conclusion of the inquest the coroner will register the death with the registrar for the area where the death occurred. The register offices for North Wales (East and Central) are:
