The Chief Coroner is very sad to report the death in service of Professor Jennifer Leeming, Senior Coroner for the Manchester West coroner area.

Jennifer served Manchester West as senior coroner from 2001 and she was an influential and active figure in the coroner world.

She will be greatly missed by her colleagues and by the wider legal and judicial community both in Manchester and more widely in England & Wales. The Chief Coroner’s thoughts are with Jennifer’s family, her friends and her colleagues.
