WHAT may be termed a burial scandal, though it has nothing to do with the Church, has rocently taken place in Pem brokeshire. It is generally supposed that a coroner's inquest is held "on the body," and to make good this view of the law, the jury, as a rule, proceed to view the body. But an inquest has been held at Kilrhedyn, in the parish of Llysyfran, Pembrokeshire, the body with regard to which the inquest was being held having been buried on the previous day. It seems that about three weeks ago a man hung himself in the parish named, on a Saturday. Notice was duly given to the coroner, who appointed the inquest to be held on the following Wednesday. But the coroner on that day went to another Llysyfran, near Fishguard, a dozen or so miles distant from the Llysyfran at which the jury were waiting for him. On the coroner finding out his mistake, he instructed the constable that he would ap- pear at the proper Llysyfran on the Friday, but the neighbours of the suicide would wait no longer, and decided to bury the body, as decomposition had set in, and the corpse had become very offensive. When the coroner appeared on the scene the jury could not "view the body," and therefore, as the chief-constable of the county stated at yesterday's quarter sessions, no proper inquest had been held after all. The magistrates decided that the matter be referred to a committee to inves- tigate, Lord KENSINGTON remarking that it was decidedly a disgrace that no inquest was held till after the man was buried.
