This is a statutory service set up to consider the cause of all sudden, violent, suspicious or unnatural deaths. It is entirely independent but financed by us. We appoint the Coroner and the appointment is then approved by the Lord Chancellor and Chief Coroner.
The Coroner's Charter for Buckinghamshire gives further details about how the service works and what you can expect from us. The service aims to be both efficient and sympathetic in the way it operates.
The Ministry of Justice has published a Guide to Coroner Services.
