Coroners Service during the Town Hall Refurbishment

Important changes to our service location

From 15 January 2018, Manchester Town Hall will be closed to the public as complex restoration work begins.  The Coroners Service will be moving to new accommodation in the city centre in June/July 2018.  Between those dates, the arrangements are as follows:

The Coroners Office will remain based in the Town Hall but we will not be able to receive visitors there.  All funeral directors’ paperwork will be available from the Registrars General Office, Level 2, Heron House, Lloyd Street, Manchester, the day after being notified of clearance.  Relatives who want to speak with an Officer face to face should arrange this by phone or email.  The meeting will take place at Heron House.

Court 1 will move to Courtroom 9, Manchester Crown Court, Crown Square, Manchester.
Court 2 is situated in an area of limited access within the Town Hall.  Entry is via the ramp next to the Lloyd Street entrance. 
People who have received a summons to Jury Service should report to the Town Hall on their first day.  The briefing and selection process will take place there, then an usher will walk the selected jurors over to the Crown Court.  (We will arrange a taxi if anyone needs this.)  On all other days, jurors should go straight to the Crown Court.
