Delay in Treasure process

Post by Jungle » Wed Nov 08, 2017 11:11 am

I found out that due to budget cuts, my FLO now only visits BM twice a year to drop off items for investigation and collect items they have finished with. Depending on timings, this adds up to 6 months to delay before Inquest can take place.

Report it to the coroner local to where it was found.Your legal duty done.
E-mail Ian Richardson (Treasure Registrar) at the BM and take it in yourself.
Specialists at the BM can write the report.

Its a great day out!

That sounds like a great idea.
