We FOIed all county councils and unitary authorities and asked:

For each year 2009/10, 2010/11, 2011/12, 2012/13, 2014/14, 2014/15, 2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/18:
10
1. number of people known to the authority as statutory homeless, who died each year.
11
2. How many Safeguarding Adults Reviews (SAR) were undertaken each year, and if possible, how many were for:
a. people who were statutory homeless
b. people who were statutory homeless who died
12
In areas where we knew of specific homeless deaths we also asked if there had been an SAR in connection with them. There was 83 recorded death in our 'Dying Homeless' database (linked in "Notes" below) at the time.
