Information about inquests in Hertfordshire can now be accessed online.
Hertfordshire County Council has updated its public information system for inquests and you can now find details at www.hertsdirect.org/inquests and click the link at the end of the second paragraph. This will take you to the Coroners’ Inquest Calendar.
Here you will find a list of all ongoing inquests, which can be searched and sorted by a number of criteria. Following a death the information on the deceased will be posted here, if and when an inquest process begins.
All inquests for which a hearing date has been arranged can be accessed by selecting ‘forthcoming inquests’.
All inquest hearings are held at The Old Courthouse, St Albans Road East, Hatfield, AL10 0ES.
Not all deaths result in an inquest. For the criteria, please see the information provided on the website.
