Duties and functions
Responsibilities of the coroner may include overseeing the investigation and certification of deaths related to mass disasters that occur within the coroner’s jurisdiction. A coroner’s office typically maintains death records of those who have died within the coroner’s jurisdiction.
The additional roles that a coroner may oversee in judicial investigations may be subject to the attainment of suitable legal and medical qualifications. The qualifications required of a coroner vary significantly between jurisdictions, and are described under the entry for each jurisdiction. Coroners, medical examiners, and forensic pathologists are different professions. They have different roles and responsibilities.
Martin Coulcher , coroner, lived for the most part of his life with his mother Sarah , in Lynn Road . She died in 1881 and he in 1883 . Curiously his effects totalled £219 , which seems very little for a law man and a coroner and a man whose recent family , father , grandfather , on both sides , were wealthy men . And he owned or his mother owned a great many properties.
