This book records deaths that took place in the town of Timișoara from 1870 to 1895, primarily in the Fabric/Fabrik/Gyárváros quarter. Entries are generally comprehensively completed, sometimes using elaborate calligraphy (those in German). Entries record the name, birth place, occupation (sometimes), gender, residence, and marital status of the deceased; date, place, and cause of death; immediate surviving relatives; and place and date of burial. The book is printed in Hungarian but recorded in German until the late 1870s, after which it is recorded in Hungarian. There is also an alphabetic name index at the back of the book.
