Covid deaths compared to total of burials and cremations in Knowsley

In Oct 2020, the media reported that 254 deaths from Covid 19 had occured in the St Helens and Knowsley NHS area since the pandemic had began. Source: MSN

In a Freedom of information request to Knowsley Council, we asked how many funerals had taken place in Knowsley (burials and cremations) each year from 2015 to 2020. The numbers are as follows

2015 = 248
2016 = 265
2017 = 211
2018 = 249
2019 = 211
2020 = 240

So that's 254 supposed extra deaths from a pandemic. Yet there's no noticeable rise in the total number of deaths and funerals over the last five years.
