Births, marriages, deaths & nationality Court diary

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 several days, 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, please contact the office on 0161 219 2222 between 9am and 4pm or by email to

If you are looking at the diary to find an inquest to observe for professional development, you are welcome to attend in groups of up to four, whenever you choose.  Just send us a courtesy email to let us know you are coming. Groups of five or more must make a formal booking by email to ensure we have space in the courtroom.  

The Coroner's Court is an open court and members of the public (including members of the press) are allowed to attend.  We always put bereaved families first, and remind all visitors to be sensitive and respectful.

We have moved to the Royal Exchange Building, St Ann's Square.
