Commissioners appointed |

The Government has announced that Commissioners are to be appointed for Nottingham City Council.  For further information, the council’s response and FAQs can be read here.

HM Coroner’s Service is currently receiving high volumes of referrals, in part due to a change in legislation relating to the Coronavirus Act 2020. This change means that more deaths must now be referred to the Coroner which may impact response times.   

If a death has been referred to us, please wait for us to contact you rather than calling the service. We will be in touch as soon as we can.
