The provisional number of deaths registered in England and Wales in June 2019 was 38,606; this represents a decrease of 5,782 deaths in comparison with the previous month and a decrease of 1,162 deaths in comparison with the same month in 2018.
Moveable public holidays and the number of weekends, when register offices are closed, affect the number of registrations made in the published months and in the corresponding months in previous years.
The decrease in the provisional number of deaths registered in June 2019 is likely to be the result of a higher number of days when register offices were closed during the month in comparison with the previous month.
These figures are presented by regions (within England), unitary authorities, counties, districts and London boroughs.
Weekly deaths counts cannot be summed to match the counts for monthly deaths as some weeks may span more than one month.
