The coronial system works to support all families irrespective of their faith or culture. Those who may not have a specific proscription against autopsy may still have their concerns about the autopsy communicated to the coroner by the counsellor and/or the police. In principle, it is argued that "the least intrusive examination that will resolve the issues in doubt should be ordered".

It is also stipulated under Section 19, that Coroners can only make such an order after considering any concerns raised by a family member, or other person with "sufficient interest," and if he or she decides to order an internal autopsy despite such concerns being expressed, a copy of the order must be given to the person who raised the concern . The Act does not provide any mechanism for a concerned family member to challenge an order but the decision would be subject to review in the Supreme Court at the instigation of the relative pursuant to the Judicial Review Act 1990.
