Sources:

  1. Derived entirely from mort_sub.


Notes:

  1. The QR for the first quarter of 1881 states 'The Registration sub-Districts (2177 in number) are sub-divisions of the Superintendent Registrar's Districts in which the Births and Deaths are registered by Registrars severally appointed for that purpose.
  2. This table is easier to use than mort_sub as (a) the quarterly data are simplified to annual (b) it includes not just rows for sub-districts but also totals for Registration Districts, Registration Counties and national totals (c) everything is matched to the AUO.
  3. At the time of writing (June 2015), all units have been matched to the AUO with the exception of twelve Registration sub-Districts.
