The LMA has a useful information leaflet

https://www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/things-to-do/london-metropolitan-archives/visitor-information/Pages/information-leaflets.aspx

click on Courts Legal and Crime

and then select the Coroners option

See page 9 and 10 of the pdf

The LMA answer enquiries in date received order, you might have a bit of a wait. My last enquiry took 10 working days

A bit oblique really but may be of interest.  I was born at 30 Ouseley Road in 1946.  The grounds of St James' hospital were over our back garden wall.  Memory is a bit hazy now as I was only 8 when we moved away, and I don't recall the hospital being actually in our road, but I suppose the entrance driveway could have been further down the road.  Have you tried street view?

Hi CP  yes I have done a street view and there was an entrance right next door to 46 with a brick arch and gate.  The main entrance was round the corner in Sarsfield road.

Hi Suzi

Yes the main entrance in Sarsfield Road conjures up a memory image that I recognise.  The entrance next to no 46 obviously didn't stick so clearly.  My Grandmother who lived with us died in St James' in 1948.

A couple of old films of the hospital from the 1950s here:
