coronial council The Coronial Council of Victoria, in consultation with the Victorian Multicultural Commission, is seeking feedback from cultural and religious communities on their knowledge of the coronial system.

We recognise that the coronial process can sometimes be at odds with cultural and religious beliefs and practices. To help us better understand these challenges, we would like your input on what you know about the coronial process.
