When the cause of a death needs to be looked into further, a coroner will carry out an inquest, the NHS choices website explains what is involved.
The Coroner’s service for Leicestershire is split into two districts:
- HM Coroner for Rutland & North Leicestershire District
- HM Coroner for Leicester City & South Leicestershire District
GOV.UK has more information on what happens when a death is reported to a coroner.
In the first instance all enquiries should be directed to the Coroner’s Officer – Katharine Bakewell and not to the Coroner.
