About the Schuylkill County Coroner
On behalf of the Schuylkill County Office of the Coroner, we extend our deepest sympathy to you during this time.
The Schuylkill County Coroner’s Office works diligently to assure our daily work is directed at assisting the
families who survive the loss of a loved one. While our work is centered about sudden, violent and traumatic
death situations, the driving mission of our Office is centered about service to the living family and friends
who are the victims of a tragic loss. Our services are directed at understanding the truth about how and why
their loved one died, and service directed at revealing and enacting any means of preventing future, similar deaths
within our County.
SCHUYLKILL COUNTY OFFICE OF THE CORONER | NEW OFFICE
Following the election of Dr. David J. Moylan to the position of Schuylkill County Coroner, the Schuylkill
County Office of the Coroner moved from the Schuylkill County Emergency Management Building to a new, more
spacious state-of-the-art office located at 15 Alliance Street, New Philadelphia, PA 17959. New Philadelphia
is very close to the geographic center of Schuylkill County. The new office location is conveniently located
less than 10 minutes from the Schuylkill County Courthouse, features office spaces, a toxicology storage
room, and a large conference room for meetings with families, investigators, and staff. The Mobile Morgue
equipped with a cold storage facility is also located at the same address. All lease hold improvements were
made at no costs to the taxpayers. The current monthly rental fee is exactly the same as the charge for
storage space alone paid by the County prior to 2012.
