How do I find out how many coronavirus-related deaths there have been in my area?

By entering your postcode into the map, you will be able to see how many coronavirus-related deaths have occurred near you between March 1 and June 30.

This information was gathered using data from an interactive map produced by the Office for National Statistics.

And while the authority endeavour to be as specific as possible, there are certain instances where the data may be slightly skewed. For example: To protect confidentiality, a small number of deaths have been reallocated between neighbouring areas.

Points on the map are placed at the centre of the local area they represent and do not show the actual location of deaths. The size of the circle is proportional to the number of deaths

To protect confidentiality, a small number of deaths have been reallocated between neighbouring areas. Due to the method used for this, figures for some areas may be different to previously published data.

Deaths occurring between March 1, 2020 and June 30, 2020 and registered by July 11, 2020.

Figures exclude death of non-residents and are based on May 2020 boundaries.
