Classifications of death causes from 1750 till 1900 The systematic registration of the causes of death takes place in the Netherlands and other European countries in the middle of the nineteenth century. This is preceded by a period in which the registration of causes of death is a local matter, in other words the lists of causes of death differ per town. So the registration in the Netherlands begins in The Hague in the year 1755, and does not become national until 1865 when the Medical Inspectorate of Public Health comes into being. Complete centralization takes place after the Central Bureau of Statistics has taken over the registration in 1900.
