County of Madera


Coroner Division

The Sheriff is an elected Public Official who also serves as the Coroner of Madera County. The Coroner is required by state law (Government Code 27491) to investigate all deaths. It is the responsibility of the Coroner to establish positive identification of the deceased; determine date, place and time of death; and the cause and classification of death. The Coroner's investigation is not limited to the examination of the deceased, but may include interviews with family members and other witnesses, as well as collecting physical evidence, and the safeguarding of personal property found at the death scene.

On Behalf of the County Coroner Staff, I wish to extend our deepest sympathy to those who have experienced the loss of a loved one.

To help those who have suffered a loss we have provided a list of answers to commonly asked questions to offer assistance during this difficult time.
