CSH: Patient Death Ledgers


Patient Deaths


Note: Due to time and the hand-written nature of the entries, some information on these ledgers is illegible. Additionally, many pages or entire yearly ledgers have been lost. Data that precedes 1938 have been put together using information gathered from death certificates. Due to the overwhelming number of death certificate, we cannot individually cite each certificate.


Names in blue indicate patient burials in Central State Hospital Cemeteries.


Be sure to scroll both vertically and horizontally to access all of the information in the index.
