coroners and coronial process

Coroners and coronial process. Observations, experiences, concerns. This diagram of the a coronial process can be more easily seen by clicking on it. Issues that concern me about this diagram. One, is that I am currently a participant. And, two, anyone else see a control issue in the diagram?

It appears to be an inquisitorial system, rather than an adversarial one, with the coroner in the role of investigating judge, so by design the system is largely under the control of the coroner. That's not uncommon in civil law systems, as I understand it. Which specific coronial process is this, in what jurisdiction? Does a jury sit at the inquest?

Best book I can recommend on the subject: The Cadaver King and the Country Dentist. The abuses of the Coroner system (especially the elected coroner system) throughout US history continuing in many places in the US today are heartbreaking.

It appears to be the standard process that I am familiar with, although for some reason it is missing natural deaths that do not require a police investigation but nevertheless require an inquest because the cause of death needs to be determined (a post mortem may show the immediate cause but may not be deemed sufficient). Those are usually hospital deaths related to procedures or surgery where death was not an expected outcome and occurred suddenly.

It would be interesting to know where this process is in place.

This could be the UK excluding Scotland. The coroner has to determine who, where when and how. In the UK there are a range of verdicts including narrative and the coroner may or may not sit with a jury. In the UK the coroner might be medically or legally qualified.

This is a skeptic site if you are posting from the other side people will expect you to provide some proof.

ETA and if you are the coroner we might be a bit concerned that you are coming here for advice.

The graphic is small and blurry for me. I can't read it.
