24. Complaints about the conduct
      of a coroner or coroner’s officer

 

If you are upset about the way you have been treated, which may be lack of contact and information or the behaviour of the coroner or coroner's officer, before or during an inquest, you should write to the coroner. If you are not satisfied with the reply, you should write to the Coroners Unit at the Ministry of Justice (Section 28). An administrative complaint will be investigated by the Coroners Division and referred to the Lord Chancellor, if considered serious enough for disciplinary action. Complaints about a coroner’s decisions or outcome of an inquest can only be dealt with by the High Court. (Section 23)
