Coroner statistics 2023

The Coroner Statistics Tool is a dashboard which allows comparison of figures by coroner area and regional levels for all coroner-reported deaths in England and Wales. This data forms part of the Ministry of Justice Coroners Statistics Annual 2023 Publication.

Inquests

You can view the current inquests due to be held by the Bedfordshire and Luton Coroner Service in the table below. 

Beneath the inquest information, you can find out more about our service, our duties and who the coroner is. In addition, you will find information on bereavement support and support with deaths in custody.

How to search for information

You will need to add in a date range to view inquests. For example, the enquiry from date could be today's date and the enquiry to date could be 31/12/2023. Once you do that, you can view inquests in that date range. You can then also search by surname. 

At the bottom of this page there is a feedback button. Please use this if you feel the information appearing is incorrect.
