The Role Of The Coroner's Officers

The Coroner is supported by a team of Coroner’s Officers.  In the South Wales Central Coroner Area, they are employed by South Wales and Dyfed Powys Police. 

They investigate the circumstances of deaths referred to the Coroner under his direction and will deal directly with the family of the deceased. They are specially trained to work with bereaved families, arrange identifications of bodies and conduct enquiries on behalf of the Coroner.
