A former county coroner is to give a talk on death from a judicial perspective.

Edward Thomas served as county coroner from 2004 to 2016 and was known for his compassionate attitude to witnesses, families, and people suffering from mental health issues.

When he retired, the Herts Advertiser carried a tribute to his work called ‘Farewell to Herts’ caring coroner after 30 years’.

On Thursday April 27, Mr Thomas will be sharing his perspective of dealing with death, especially in unexplained or unexpected circumstances.

His talk will be the third installation of the ‘HOPE Talk’ series, run by St Albans Bereavement Matters and Mosaic Counselling Services.

The series is intended to raise awareness of the issues around suicide, death and loss.

Mr Thomas’ talk will start at 7.30pm and is expected to last until 9.30pm.
