Once an inquest is completed, you can apply to the coroner for copies of documents
and statements that have been admitted and copies of a tape transcript or the written
Notes of Evidence, which a coroner must make during the hearing. If you want to have
copies there will be a charge and you will be asked to pay it in advance, but if
a successful civil claim for compensation is made, you should be able to recover
the charge. As with medical records, if you make the application yourself, costs
for a solicitor's time will be avoided.
