Series notes:
If death occurred while the convict was still under sentence it was recorded in these registers rather than in those of the Registrar-General. Details given include number, name and ship, date and place of death and, in the case of accidents, the cause. The second volume gives also, where and when tried and sentence, and condition (e.g., holding ticket-of-leave, probation pass, etc.).
