Please note:

  • If you are seeking a copy of a document or a recording, you will need to pay a fee.
  • The coroner’s court cannot provide a Death Certificate. You can get a copy of a Death Certificate through Service Tasmania.
  • The coroner may not be able to grant access to some records until the investigation is complete.
  • Post mortem reports are only released to medical practitioners (including GPs). If you are requesting access to a post mortem, you will need to provide the name and contact details of the medical practitioner you would like the report to be sent to. If access is granted, you will need to make an appointment with the medical practitioner so that they can explain the report to you.
  • If you are seeking access to the complete file, there are some documents which are not disclosed as a matter of course. This may be due to the nature of the document (such as graphic photographs), or the current stage of the investigation. If access to the file is granted, you will be advised of any documents which are not disclosed.
  • Any information released is only at the discretion of the Coroner or Chief Coroner and is decided on an individual case by case basis.
  • You will need to provide in writing why you are seeking access to any documents.
