Types of Inquest

Documentary Inquest

A documentary inquest, sometimes also called a Rule 23 inquest, is one where evidence is:

  • admitted in writing
  • not disputed

This avoids the need for witnesses whose evidence is uncontroversial to attend in person.

A coroner will decide the facts based only on written evidence.

After closing the inquest the coroner will inform the interested persons of the determination, findings and conclusion in writing.
