Coroners: Jurisdiction & Contact list

The Secret Squirrel page has been updated with a downloadable Word document (123 kb) listing jurisdictions & contact details for coroners as of May 2005. This is the result of an FOI request made by a member of the public to the Home Office Coroner’s Unit.

The Home Office hasn’t bothered to make this information public on its own coroners website, so I am publishing it here.

Coroners remain largely unaccountable and readers of Your Right to Know will be aware that I battled in vain even to get such minimal information as the identity and contact details of coroners prior to implementation of the Freedom of Information Act. The coronial system needs a major overhaul, but at least we now know who these public servants are.
