Coroners Registers

I had a look at this register while at Wellington National archives last week. As you can see, it includes reports on fires around the country. I thought that was interesting. The example shown here was for 1902.
For a closer look, click on the image. Using the reference number on the right, the file can be ordered up.


  1. We have these registers on microfilm in the NZSG Library in Panmure.

  2. Coroner's registers item so
    are these fires in which there was a death ?

  3. No, I don't think so, probably for insurance claims.
    See this one on the net.
