Is it possible to find Coroners' reports online?

I am pretty sure the answer is No.
every query Iíve ever seen says to look in Newspapers in the hope it was reported.
currently concentrating on NUTCHER & MARSHALL families, Hampshire.
and family of Thomas ANDERSON a Tailor of Perth, Scotland

Country? Century?

For example, there are some 18th-century inquest reports from Westminster on London Lives ...

Ah, thank you. I was looking for 19th century London. I've looked in the BNA but nothing. I can't think of any other way of finding out what a 16 year old girl died of before civil registration.

What indication do you have that the coroner was involved ?

If perhaps the burial record is annotated 'per Coronerís warrant ', or similar, it will depend very much on which part of London, and the date.

Though not online, there is an almost complete run of inquest reports for the City of London and ancient borough of Southwark at LMA, but comparatively little survives for Middlesex and the rest of Surrey in the 19th century.

It would really depend on your level of interest as to how far you want to investigate.

Hi Lynne

A lot of coroners reports are found in the local newspapers.
I recently had to look one up in the Harrow Observer for an Aussie friend,whose aunt died in 1956.

I think I've come across you on Facebook,and if I'm right your family ran Tann and Archers?

Regards

Carol (an ex Harrow Weald girl) x

Antony, I don't have any indicatiion that the coroner was involved, I just couldn't think of any other way of finding out what she died of. It's a vain hope I know.

Bookbox, that's a shame! It's Middlesex....Chelsea area. My level of interest grows as the difficulty gets greater! It's just that, while lots of babies and infants died, teenagers were often killed as a result of accident I've found. She was 16. Her sister died later at the age of 19, but luckily that was in 1837 so I've ordered the death certificate.

Carol, hi! Gosh the internet is a weird and wonderful thing isn't it? Yes, my family ran Tann and Archer. It's the Tanns I'm looking at at the moment. This girl is the aunt of the Tann who started Tann and Archer. (I've never been able to find out who Archer was though). Nice to see you on here!
