Lidcombe Coroners Court
The Coroner’s CourtIn the case of a sudden, unexpected or traumatic death, the NSW Coronial Jurisdiction is in charge of conducting a proper investigation into the death. In Sydney, this takes place at the Lidcombe Coroner’s Court. They will take your religious and cultural needs as required and look to the senior next-of-kin for updates and permission to conduct a post-mortem. In addition, they are here to support you with respect and compassion.An autopsy is carried out by a licensed forensic practitioner. This is an examination of the internal organs to determine the cause of death. The incisions are made and closed carefully, and in most cases the marks won’t be seen with clothing. At Afterlife Funerals, we have experience in dealing with the Lidcombe Coroner’s Court and can let you know a little about what you can expect.
What happens after a sudden death occursThe police will report the death to the coroner in the event of an unexpected or unexplained death to the NSW Coroner. Then the body of your loved one is taken to the forensic medicine department within the coroners court in Lidcombe. For regional areas, they may be taken into a local hospital instead. There are other forensic medicine institutes in Newcastle and Wollongong as well. The NSW coroner will call you asap to let you know of the death and ask questions about the conditions and circumstances they may have been facing before their death. Before a postmortem happens, the NSW coroner will let the senior next-of-kin know. At which point they can send a request in writing through email with their reason if they object. In the case the Coroner insists that a post-mortem is still required to locate the cause of death, the senior next of kin will be advised they have 48 hours to submit a request to the Supreme Court to prevent a post mortem. If the senior next of kin does not want to proceed with court action, it is recommended to immediately inform the coronial support staff.
Support servicesThe Lidcombe Coroners Court also has support services to speak with the other people in your family, doctor, school or workplace. They can also help assist you to understand what is needed or what will come up with the coronial process. As well as refer you to counselling and other supportive services.
Mortuary TransferAfter the unexplained death of a loved one, you can usually expect the autopsy and coronial process to take 2-3 days before your funeral director can arrange transportation to the funeral home. Sometimes delays can happen, and it is best to finalised funeral dates once your loved has been officially released.
ViewingWe, your funeral director can arrange a viewing after the body of your loved one once they have received mortuary care, usually as a part of the funeral service. You can also arrange to see the body at the Lidcombe coroner’s court and forensic facilities as well, after talking with coronial support staff. Please let us know if you require any help in this regard.
RegistrationAfter the body is transferred into our care, we can complete all the paperwork for the death certificate and registration of death. The Coroner can also issue an interim certificate during the time of the investigation.
