Attending a coroner's inquest

The coroner, who may be a doctor or a lawyer by profession,
investigates the cause of unexplained deaths. If the death was
expected and the cause is clear, an inquest will not usually be held.
The purpose of the coroner’s inquest is to answer four questions
about the deceased;

1. Who was deceased?

2. When did they die?

3. Where did they die?

4. How did they die? i.e. by what means did they come by
their death?
