COVID-19 UPDATE

 

Coroners Final Hearing Inquests

The Coroner will continue to open and adjourn Inquests. Families, Interested Parties and the Press will be notified accordingly.  Wherever possible, & with the agreement of Interested Persons, the Coroner will continue to conclude Documentary Only Inquests.  These Inquests will be listed on the website and we would advise that you check this page regularly.  Please follow this link - http://www.southwalescentralcoroner.co.uk/En/SeeUpcomingInquests/ListedInquestHearings.aspx

In line with the Government’s guidance in relation to working practices, please note that we will no longer routinely be able to accept visitors into the building. This will be relaxed to allow public access (observing social distancing guidelines) when hearings are taking place
