Cut & pasted from my answer on another site :~

Re :~ Coroners Warrant …….

Now if there was a sudden death then a Corners Inquest is held
This consists of THREE Parts.

Coroners Warrant.
This is were the Coroner sends out warrants to all the main parties
Doctor, Nurses. Midwives for medical evidence & Relative ( Informer of death) ,
Before & leading up to the death.
To be at hand on the date set for the Inquest.

Coroners Inquest.
This is were all the parties evidence is discussed on oath.

Coroners report.
This is were the Coroner makes his / her judgement on the said evidence
And passes their verdict based on that foresaid evidence.
Accidental. Suicide, Open verdict, Etc.

This was explained to me buy my solicitor friend.

Re :~ SUB-SECTION E1

This is were the E section was becoming FULL so ground close to section E was used usualy crossing section E in the other way

Sorry I missed your post ....
It's these new glasses I've now got
