of the
Being the Report for the Year 1904.
To the Right Worshipful the Mayor, Aldermen, and Councillors of the
Metropolitan Borough of St. Pancras.
Mr. Mayor, Aldermen, and Councillors,—
I have the honour to present to you the Forty-ninth Annual Report upon
the vital and sanitary condition of the Metropolitan Borough of St. Pancras.
Although the Registration District of St. Pancras has remained practically
the same area since l856, except for a few adjustments of boundary described
in the Report for the year 1900, the changes in the areas of the Registration
Sub-Districts since the last mentioned date have been so great that it has been
found necessary to insert as a frontispiece to this Report the small maps of
them in previous and present use. These three small maps show the areas (1)
previous to 1900, (2) at the Census in 1901, and (3) at the present time.
(The two south Southern Sub-Districts, although still separate, are amalgamated
in the statistics for the present year, as it is intended to amalgamate them at
some future date, and for the sake of continuity it is desirable not to have to
make any further changes in the statistical records.)
In the Report for 1903, were inserted tables showing the numbers and the
percentage of statistical or Census over-crowding, that is, more than two persons
per room, in each of the 115 Enumeration areas of the Registration Sub-Districts
of St. Pancras. In this Report is inserted a coloured map of the Borough shewing
graphically by depths of shading the degrees of Census over-crowding in each
of the Enumeration areas. The letters S.S. on certain areas signify Special
Schedules and refer to certain Public Institutions that cannot be treated in this
statistical manner.
