Sorry if I'm missing the point but why does this need to be adjourned?
Yes, I understand but this isn't a date clash?
You can always make an application for an adjournment.
The reality is that it is not likely to be granted. This just isn't a clash. It is obviously an event that is sad and nobody would wish upon you but it is not a reason that you can't be ready for the hearing in practice.
Making an application is easy though. You just email the court and CPS with your application and your grounds.
Can I clarify anything for you?
