    According to this article many perished as a result of child slavery ... up to 25 percent died before their 25th birthday due to harsh work conditions in Great Britain for example>>>http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1312764/Britains-child-slaves-New-book-says-misery-helped-forge-Britain.html


     


    Grubby work: Child chimney sweeps often had to crawl through holes only 18in wide - and cruel masters would light fires to make them climb faster. Many fell to their deaths

    In the first half of the 1800s many children died in their infancy. Close to half of the babies born died before their 3rd birthday.
