Before Her Majesty’s Senior Coroner Heidi Connor
Berkshire Coroner’s Court
Reading Town Hall
Opens 10am Tuesday 9 November 2021, expected to last 3 days.
LCpl Joel Robinson died on 25 March 2019. He served in the Household Cavalry. At the time of his death, he was based at Combermere Barracks in Windsor, although he had recently returned from Germany where he had been based since June 2017.
Joel’s mother, Angela Robinson, describes him as a warm, loyal, sociable young man with a wide circle of friends. He was a gifted horseman and it was his passion for horses that had drawn him to the Army which he joined aged 16.
The family hope that the inquest will investigate not only the immediate steps leading up to his death but the Army’s response to a formal complaint alleging bullying made by Joel in the summer before he died.
