Coroner's Diary Overview

These pages show the inquests that are listed for hearing in the next month or so.  Complex / Jury inquests that are expected to last for more than one day, and are arranged well in advance, are also shown on a separate page.

If an inquest is listed at very short notice, it may not appear in the online diary.  Cancellations with short notice may also not appear.  If you are concerned that an inquest for a relative is not shown here, or if you are coming to observe and want to check the hearing is going to proceed, you are welcome to contact the office.  We can be contacted on 0161 219 2222 between 9am and 4pm or by email on

Both our courtrooms are on the ground floor of Manchester Town Hall.  We occasionally borrow a courtroom from Manchester Civil Justice Centre when we need a larger space.

The Coroner's Court is an open court and members of the public (including members of the press) are entitled to attend should they wish.  We ask all visitors to be sensitive to the needs of the bereaved family - please read and comply with the requests in the online guide to visiting court.
