Almost all surviving coroner's inquests from eighteenth-century London have been included on this website. The only exception is a small collection of forty-four formal Inquest documents relating to deaths in Middlesex, in the six months between 20 December 1783 and 20 June 1784. These are held in the Westminster Abbey Muniment Room. Of the approximately 5,000 Inquests included on this site, few survive before 1760 (for Westminster) and the 1780s (for the rest of London).
