What is an inquest?

An Inquest is a fact-finding inquiry conducted by a Coroner. An Inquest may be called when somebody dies in sudden, violent, or unknown circumstances. If the deceased was detained in police/prison custody, was under the Mental Health Act, or detained by other means; then an Inquest into their death will be required by law. For families of the deceased, it is often the first, and only, opportunity to have their questions surrounding their loved one’s death heard and answered.

The purpose of an Inquest is to establish where, when, and how somebody died. The Coroner can make recommendations, following conclusion of the Inquest, which may prevent future deaths occurring.
