Great Bolton SubD — Current theme: Life & Death

This theme covers births, marriages and deaths, including changing causes of death. Unlike most of our themes, it is based not on the Census but on the closely related system for registering births, marriages and deaths, established in 1837.

In this first version of the system, the main emphasis is on infant mortality, the number of children dying before their first birthday as a proportion of all births.

We hold these detailed statistics for Bolton, which we graph and tabulate here:
