The Coroners Court provides a thorough service when investigating the circumstances in which people die.
Usually a police officer or medical practitioner will notify the State Coroner of any death that may be a reportable death.
The State Coroner must decide if it is necessary to hold an inquest to determine the cause and circumstances of death.
A brochure explaining the coronial process can be obtained here.
Further information about the Coroners Court is available from the Courts Administration Authority website.
