Please provide UK annual death statistics covering England and Wales from 2013 to 2020.

We said

​Thank you for your request.

We are responsible for the production of Mortality data for England and Wales, this is driven by information collected from the death certificate at death registration. National Records Scotland (NRS) and Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA) are responsible for statistics pertaining to Scotland and Northern Ireland. They can be contacted at foi@nrscotland.gov.uk and info@nisra.gov.uk respectively.

However, we do publish headline figures within our Vital statistics in the UK: births, deaths and marriages. The latest data available is 2019.

According to the following weekly bulletin, Deaths registered weekly in England and Wales, provisional, using the latest data available for w/e 1 January 2021 (week 53), there have been 614,114 deaths registered in England and Wales.

Whilst the data has not yet been finalised for 2020, all three Statistical authorities have published blogs with year end figures:
