Infant Mortality

A table showing the number of stillborn children and causes of death for children under 1 year of age for each of the five years ending 31 May, 1902-1906.

These figures relate only to children buried by Glasgow Corporation Sanitary Department. Such burials occured when the families were too poor to pay for the funeral, or when there were no known relatives.
