We said

Thank you for your request.

We hold the following analysis for Deaths registered weekly in England and Wales, provisional. This is deaths by date of death registration and data is available from 2010 to 2021 in this data set.

We have also published Deaths registered weekly from 1993 to 2018 by region, England and Wales which provides death registrations from 1993 to 2018. There is also a tab which provides COVID-19 deaths by date of occurrence (date of death).

Unfortunately, we have not completed analysis on deaths by date of occurrence.

We do hold the following user requested data sets:

Five year minimum and maximum weekly deaths, deaths occurring between 2015 and 2019 and Provisional weekly deaths occurring in 2020, England and Wales

Deaths by date of death and local authority, 2010 to 2014 occurrences

If this does not meet your needs, we can produce this for you as a bespoke request. special extracts and tabulations of mortality data for England and Wales are available to order (subject to legal frameworks, disclosure control, resources and agreements of costs, where appropriate).
