Notes.—This Table is arranged to show the gross births and deaths registered in the borough during the year, and the births and deaths properly belonging to it with

* In Column 6 are included the whole of the deaths registered during the calendar year as having actually occurred within the borough, but excluding the deaths of Soldiers
and Sailors that have occurred in hospitals and institutions in the borough.
In Column 12 is entered the number in Column 6, corrected by subtraction of the number in Column 8 and by addition of the number in Column 9. Deaths in Column
10 are similarly corrected by subtraction of the deaths under 1, included in the number given in Column 8, and by addition of the deaths under 1 included in the number given
in Column 9.
† "Transferable Deaths" are deaths of persons who, having a fixed or usual residence in England or Wales, die in a district other than that in which they resided.
The deaths of persons without fixed or usual residence, e.g., casuals, are not included in Columns 8 or 9, except in certain instances under 3 (b) below. In Column 8 the
number of transferable deaths of " non-residents " which are deducted is stated, and in Column 9 the number of deaths of " residents " outside the district which are added
in calculating the nett death-rate of the Borough.
The following special cases arise as to Transferable Deaths :—
(1) Persons dying in Institutions for the sick or infirm, such as hospitals, lunatic asylums, workhouses and nursing homes (but not almshouses) are regarded as residents
of the district in which they had a fixed or usual residence at the time of admission. If the person dying in an Institution had no fixed residence at the time of admission,
the death is not transferable. If the patient has been directly transferred from one such Institution to another, the death is transferable to the district of residence at the
time of admission to the first institution.
(2) The deaths of infants born and dying within a year of birth in an Institution to which the mother was admitted for her confinement are referred to the district of
fixed or usual residence of the parent.
(3) Deaths from Violence are referred (a) to the district of residence, under the general rule; (b) if this district is unknown, or the deceased had no fixed abode, to the
district where the accident occurred, if known ; (c) failing this, to the district where death occurred, if known ; and (d) failing this, to the district where the body was found.
Area of District in acres (land and inland water), 1706.
