HM Coroner is the judge responsible for investigating a death when: 

  • the cause of death is apparently unknown; or
  • the cause of death is apparently unnatural; or
  •  death occurs in state custody (police, prison or mental health detention).

If you want advice or information about a death that has been reported to HM Coroner for Inner North London, contact St Pancras Coroner’s Court (for deaths in Camden or Islington).
