We are responsible for publishing mortality statistics for deaths registered in England and Wales, using the information supplied on the death certificate. Deaths for Scotland and Northern Ireland can be obtained at NR Scotland and NISRA respectively.
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide the exact dates requested as part of the FOI regime, as this would be a request for bespoke analysis of data.
