UK law: Inquests?

Can anyone help me find a transcript of a British coroner's inquest anywhere from the mid-1700s to the late 1800s?

Wikipedia has been helpful on a general overview of what an inquest is, but I'm looking for more detailed information like a play-by-play run down of how they work. What I'm really looking for is the "scripted" sayings and when things take place. (i.e. in an American court, you'd have a witness taking an oath, or the bailiff saying "all rise" as the judge entered the room, etc).


Search terms used: regency england inquests transcripts, famous historical inquests (which brought up mostly Princess Diana articles)
