Search for an Inquest

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update: Whilst physical attendance in the Courtroom for hearings is always open to all, including the public and members of the press, remote attendance via Microsoft Teams is only available to Witnesses, Interested Persons and Legal Representatives with the Coroner’s prior express approval. In line with guidance from the Chief Coroner such remote attendance is not available to members of the public or press. If you are attending an inquest, please observe social distancing measures. We are limiting the number of attendees in the court, waiting areas and meeting rooms to allow for this. Please wear a face covering when you enter and leave court, use the hand sanitiser and bring your own bottled water, tissues and stationary. Do not leave any rubbish or items in the building or pass paperwork or items to other people. You should enter and exit the courtroom in single file. If you would like to attend a hearing in person, given the current situation regarding COVID-19, please call this number for further information: 03330 135 000.

We have prepared some information all about Inquests for families and witnesses. These are the upcoming Inquests and Inquest Openings for Essex Coroner’s Service.

Please note:

  • Inquests, Inquest Openings and Pre-Inquest Reviews for Essex are usually held in open court in Chelmsford.
  • This list is published each working day by 5pm, giving Inquest Hearings two days in advance. Inquest Openings, Pre-Inquest Reviews and Documentary Inquests are listed for the following working day only.
  • We work hard to make sure these lists are accurate. Sometimes changes are unavoidable.
  • Inquests timings are not confirmed until the Inquest is officially opened. The media should not publish any details of the deceased until after the Inquest is opened.

The search covers Inquests from last month and any available future dates. Any requests for Inquests prior to last month should be directed to essex.coronersservice@essex.gov.uk
