place in hospitals and kindred institutions within this district of persons not
properly belonging to it; and, on the other hand, of including every death of such
of its inhabitants as has occurred in hospitals, infirmaries, lunatic asylums, &c.
throughout the Metropolis generally, and also those of paupers belonging to the
several parishes of which the district is constituted, which have happened in the
workhouses of the Strand and Westminster Unions respectively.
