If a Coroner is involved

You will not be able to register the death until their permission has been given, they will decide:

  • that no action is necessary and inform the registration officer
  • to hold a post-mortem examination in which case a Pink Form 100B will be issued and sent to the registration officer to be used instead of a medical certificate of cause of death
  • to hold an inquest. The Coroner’s Officer or registration officer will advise you what to do in these circumstances
