This booklet contains a transcription of a notebook created by the coroners for Oxfordshire Central District listing those persons upon whose death an inquest was held between 1877 and 1905.  The purpose of the notebook is unknown but it may have been an index to further records which have not survived.  The names are arranged alphabetically by initial letter of surname, then chronologically within each letter of the alphabet.  Each entry contains, at least, the date of the inquest, the name of the deceased, the parish in which the inquest was held and the verdict or cause of death.  Most entries also contain the age of the deceased and some include the deceased's relationship to other named persons.  The exact area covered by the Oxfordshire Central District is not known but some indication can be obtained from the content of the notebook.  Inquests were held on persons in Launton and Bicester in the north, Eynsham and Cassington in the west, Culham, Clifton Hampden and Dorchester in the south and Wheatley in the east.  With the exception of a few inquests held at Oxford Prison there are no records within the notebook from the City of Oxford as this was a separate District with its own coroner.
