Will there be a Public Hearing?
In some cases the Coroner will conduct an Inquest “on the papers” without a public hearing if he is satisfied about the medical cause of death and the surrounding circumstances.
For example, where someone has died in a hospice after suffering for a period from the asbestos cancer of mesothelioma then the Coroner might enter a verdict of “Death by Industrial Disease” without any hearing and perhaps without any Post Mortem examination.
