This report looks at the most recent official death registration data available on alcohol related mortality. The figures in this report are based on the UK-wide harmonised definition of alcohol related deaths. The definition of alcohol related deaths only includes those causes of death regarded as most directly due to alcohol consumption. The definition includes all deaths from chronic liver disease and cirrhosis (excluding biliary cirrhosis), even when alcohol is not specifically mentioned on the death certificate.

In 2009, there were 283 alcohol related deaths, an increase on the 276 alcohol related deaths registered in 2008. The number of alcohol related deaths has risen by around 50% over the last decade and 2009 saw the highest number of alcohol related deaths on record. The largest number of alcohol related deaths occurs in those aged between 45 and 54 years.
