Causes of death recorded by priests in pre-revolutionary Russia

To monitor the statistics of mortality in the Russian Empire officially began only during the reign of Alexander II, who signed the document. In the "position" of the Committee of Ministers said that the attending police officer or the doctor was obliged to write out a death certificate, which was then passed to the police. To bring the body to the earth was only possible "by presenting the cemetery to the clergy on medical death certificate".
