About us

The Coroners Court of Victoria has three roles:

  • independently investigate deaths and fires
  • reduce preventable deaths
  • promote public health and safety and the administration of justice

What we do

Victorian families are at the centre of everything we do – from conducting thorough investigations, providing respectful services and how we share court information and documents.
