THanks fir adding me,
I know there was an inquest into the death of my Great gran who died in Clayton Le Moors, Lancs in 1898

Welcome to RootsChat
If there was a inquest then it is unlikely that any records survive.Individual Coroners decide what happens to the papers very many of them were destroyed by the coroner. You could enquire at the county record office, which will almost certainly know what is available and where it is. In the 19th Century a local newspaper report is your best bet.
