The Registers of Deaths of Barcelona contain all the deaths registered in the city. From the 1880s, the growth of the city lead to the division of these series, and the registers were divided according to the administrative districts of the city. Each register included basic personal information about the person who died: name and surname, location of birth and residence, age, profession (in case of men), cause of death, and civil status. Moreover, the register included information about people related to the deceased, more specifically the spouse, the parents, and, in some cases, the sons and daughters. They recorded their names, location of birth and residence, profession (in case of the father), and if they were alive or dead.
