If you are from a doctors surgery and would be interested in utilising our online portal to report deaths directly to the Coroner, please contact us at coroners office and one of the team shall contact you to discuss details.

Please consult the guide below to see whether a referral is appropriate. Referrals should only be made by doctors. Families are asked to refrain from using this email address.
These addresses can only be used by a Doctor who is reporting a death outside of normal working hours.

Such referrals should always be marked 'Urgent Referral' in the subject box. These cases will be considered each day at 10 am. If you are not on duty to receive a response at that time, please ensure an alternative contact is given.
