COVID-19 – CHANGES TO THE EASTERN AREA CORONER'S SERVICE – 24 MARCH 2020

In order to protect our staff and the public we serve, we have had to adjust how we provide a service to you.    In the majority of instances, service delivery will not be affected. However please note:

  • If you have an inquest scheduled over the coming weeks a member of our team will be contacting you to discuss your options.

We, like every other department have had to review staffing levels and some of our staff will be working agile with a small team still working within the Court.

The Court itself is closed to members of the public, unless you have arranged an appointment.

In order to allow the Coroner's Team to continue to support you, we would ask that where possible any queries you have are emailed to HMCoroner@Wakefield.gov.uk

We will continue to provide essential support to the families of bereaved persons.
