Background

Although inquest deposition files were created by Coroners or Justices of the Peace, the registration and storage of the files was the responsibility of the Office of the Registrar-General from circa 1856 to 1988.

Between 1959 and 1988 the registration and storage of fire inquest deposition files was undertaken by the Coroners Courts (VA 2263).

In 1988 responsibility for the registration and storage of all inquest deposition files passed to the State Coroners Office.
