What Official Log Book entries are required in relation to death inquiries?

Where a death inquiry is required by the Merchant Shipping Act 1995 to be held, a record must be made of either:

 (1) the name of the superintendent or proper officer holding the inquiry, and the date and place where it was held; or (2) that an inquiry was not held at the first port of call after the death where there was a superintendent or proper officer.

What are the statutory obligations of the employer of a seaman left behind outside the UK?

If a death or loss overboard from a UK ship occurs outside the 12-mile limit, who will have jurisdiction to hold the inquiry?
