Message from HM Coroner for Brighton & Hove

Following guidance from the Chief Coroner and in an attempt to maintain business as far as possible all Coroners had made arrangements to adjourn most of their inquests towards the end of this year.   In Brighton and Hove we have now started the process of increasing the number of Inquests that we are able to hold.

In order to do this and enable social distancing we are needing to use venues other than Coroner’s Court at Woodvale.

If you are an interested person you will have been kept up to date by your Coroner’s Officer. 

Ongoing business in the Coroner court now includes openings of Inquests as usual and the holding of all Inquests previously adjourned which are gradually being re-introduced.

You can still make enquiries through my Coroner’s Officers and through my own office in the usual way. 

With regard to Inquests that will be heard at Woodvale, please note that the accommodation is limited and due to COVID 19 restrictions if you wish to attend an Inquest at Woodvale you

MUST notify the Coroner’s Office at least 10 days before the date of the Inquest so that we can do our best to accommodate you.  If you arrive unannounced it may not be possible for you

to stay.

We are still struggling with COVID-19 related delays and difficulties so please continue to bear with us if we take longer than usual to deal with phone calls.

Rest assured we will do everything in our power to help you, your family and your friends through this most challenging of times.

Please observe social distancing, stay safe and help the NHS to look after us all.

Veronica HAMILTON-DEELEY  DL  LL.B

Senior Coroner for the City of Brighton and Hove
