first, a lot may be already backed up to google so when you sign into a new phone with your google account (assuming you have one?) then a lot may just appear.
second, depends whats died...can you connect it to pc?  does it do anything?  or have an adaptor to screen mirror to tv - may just be broken display.

If you just want figures, week on week of deaths v average deaths over last 5 years, just look here. (Weekly figures 2020 tab, top few lines)
https://www.ons.gov.uk/file?uri=%2fpeoplepopulationandcommunity%2fbirthsdeathsandmarriages%2fdeaths%2fdatasets%2fweeklyprovisionalfiguresondeathsregisteredinenglandandwales%2f2020/publishedweek1620201.xlsx

You'll see last week an extra 12000 died than you'd expect, week before 8000 etc etc

I may well have a cruise motor in the garage, Ill have a check later,
youd still need stalk and probably brake switch.


Is your estate or saloon? and does it have a variable wipe wheel, as that changes the stalk too.

When I went through this last year I found NS&I the most difficult to deal with.
Santander couldnt have been more helpful to me.

Swapped the spark plugs on the Golf as a cyl 4 misfire detected.
theres other things going on too, but the plugs were due anyway so worth swapping anyway
Didnt cure the fault and neither did moving the coil packs between cylinders.

Main issue is a P2015 which looks like it needs a new Inlet Manifold.

Car very jumpy and hunting esp at idle.
