Annual Birth, Marriage and Death registrations in England and Wales from 1838 to 1999
A vast amount of information covering all aspects of life in the United Kingdom is freely available from the Office of National Statistics on-line statbase. Although most of the database is concerned with recent statistics some historical information is available; this includes the annual number of birth, marriage and death registrations from 1838 until 1999, collated in the graph below. I have also added an estimate of annual population growth, calculated from the excess of birth registrations over death registrations.
- Marriage data from 1840 to 1929 is based on five year averages.
- War deaths not registered in England and Wales are not included.
- Annual growth is based on the excess of deaths over births and excludes immigration and emigration.
- The population of England and Wales [estimated from census returns] was as follows:
