The criteria for recording deaths in commercial fires requires the deceased to have died in a commercial fire from fire related injuries

We have been recording HFRC activity for several years.  However, we have only been recording the UPRN (Unique property reference number) since 2011 and as such can only match up HFRC data tables and incident data tables from 2011 onwards.
