Coroners Report
« on: November 17, 2020, 07:32:51 PM »
I have an 1869  Ballymena Death Certificate that references a coroner's report concerning an accidental death. Does anyone know if i am permitted to get a copy of the report from PRONI.
Thanks in advance,
sonoftherock  :)

Normal circumstances, it should not be a problem.... can you let us have the person and date details and then it can be looked up in PRONI as to Open or Closed access

Itís old enough to be open to the public. However I donít think the coroners files for the 1860s still exist. They start around 1891. However many inquests were reported in the papers. If you go to the likes of the British Newspapers Archive site you may find a report of it there. Or perhaps if you provide the details someone here with a sub might search for you.
