Examinations and Autopsies
Medical examinations are carried out to help the coroner determine the cause of a person’s death. Even if it seems
obvious, it is very important that the coroner is able to investigate exactly what happened.
This section of the website details a number of medical examinations commonly undertaken as part of the court’s investigation into a death including preliminary examinations and autopsies.
Use the blue navigation box on the left hand side of this page to find further information about preliminary examinations, autopsies and tissue donations.
