Fri, 08/17/2012 - 13:00 -- Chris Davies
NOTES to list of Coroners’ Inquest papers – Stamford Town Hall http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/records/looking-for-person/coroners-inquests.htm provides guidance on the general availability of Coroners’ Inquests papers nationally as well as a (very brief) bibliography. Currently (2012) no Coroners’ Inquest papers appear to be available online. This list gives only the barest outline of details: date, subject, verdict with some indication of cause of death and an indicator (by means of an asterisk - *) if evidence was presented to the jury, was included with individual files, and is now available. These records are not currently available for consultation, but some further details may be available by contacting this website. Please note that this list was compiled in the early 1970s, after the discovery of these papers and has not been subsequently altered. The papers were the source for the article in the Stamford Historian vol.2(1978) pp7-20 to be republished shortly on this website.
