Coroners' Records in England and Wales. 2nd edition. Jeremy Gibson & Colin D. Rogers


This guide is an attempt to itemise all extant coroner's records in England and Wales which are now in public repositories. It is intended not only for genealogists, but also for a number of other potential users of these records, such as historians, archivists, sociologists, criminologists, police, and for the coroners themselves, who are not always aware of the records which their offices have generated over time. Although there are special rules concerning access to records less than 75 years old, and material in some areas is regularly being destroyed once it is over 15 years old, a wealth of information may still be available.
