INQUEST provides expertise on state-related deaths (i.e. deaths in police and prison or mental health settings and deaths involving multi-agency failings, or where wider issues of state and corporate accountability are in question) in England and Wales.
The INQUEST handbook is free to download for bereaved families and friends affected by a sudden death that involves an inquest. (Please note the information is only relevant for the inquest process in England and Wales. We are not aware of a similar service in Scotland and Northern Ireland).
The handbook can be read or downloaded here or to order a printed copy, telephone: 020 7263 1111
