When someone dies unexpectedly it is perfectly normal for the police to attend; they are there on behalf of the Coroner to collect information. The deceased person will be moved to a local hospital into the care of the coroner so that further investigation may take place.

 It is best that you contact us as soon as you feel able. We will liaise with the Coroner’s Officer on your behalf and guide you through the process, keeping you fully informed and supported, ensuring everything happens as you and your loved one would wish.
