HM Coroner's Service - Inquest Timetable and Diary

The inquests shown below are those listed for hearing in the next month.  Major inquests that are arranged well in advance are also shown.

It is possible that if an inquest is listed at very short notice, it may not appear in the list below.  If you are concerned that an inquest for a relative of yours does not appear, you are welcome to contact the Coroner's office.

Important notice:

The Coroner's Office (Fairfield, Cockermouth) is open to allow families to attend inquests . However, in line with Government advice, if you are attending HM Coroners Court, you are expected to bring a face mask with you and to wear it at all times. This must be worn in public waiting areas, and during the inquest proceedings to prevent any risk of spreading Covid-19.  

Also, whilst immediate family members are able to attend inquests, spaces in the Court have been limited. Please ensure that no more than 2/3 people are in attendance.

Should you have any questions or queries, you can contact the office on 0300 303 3180 or email hmcoroner@cumbria.gov.uk
