shew a considerable increase in the number of deaths daring the
year 1857 as compared with the former year of 1856. The same
remark will nearly apply to the 7 previous years, as shewn in the
next Table, with the exception of the two Cholera years of 1849
and 1854. But, as regards the Parish of Greenwich, there has
been less mortality in the past year of 1857 than has taken place
during any year since 1850, in which year the deaths were very
much reduced in number, no doubt in consequence of the premature
destruction of many infirm and aged persons by the Cholera of the
previous year of 1849.
The following Table will shew the relative number of deaths
as above alluded to, during the past 9 years.
