ADwD Butcher's Bill:

Thistle, a spearwife - slain and Wighted by Others.

Varamyr*, greatest of the Skinchangers - throttled + wounds recieved at Battle of Castle Black.

Stalwart Shield, Unsullied - Slain by the Sons of the Harpy.

Hazzea, shepherd's daughter - Drogon was hungry.

Janos Slynt, revolting toady, Lannister lickspittle - Executed by order of John Snow, Lord Commander of the Nights Watch.

Rattleshirt, the Lord of Bones - burnt and feathered while in the guise of Mance Rayder.

Ralf Kenning, castellan at Moat Cailin - put out of his misery by Theon Greyjoy.

Dagon Codd, stubborn fellow - catches an axe in the face courtesy of...

Adrack Humble, short half an arm - took Ramsay Bolton at his word.

Rolfe the Dwarf, one of Asha's men - shortened by a head at Deepwood Motte.

Rhaegar Frey, envoy to White Harbour - served at Ramsay's wedding.

Ser Jared Frey, ditto - ditto.

Symond Frey, yadda yadda.

Black Jack Bulwer, ranger - didn't fear the Weeper.

Hairy Hal, ranger - " "

Garth Greyfeather, ranger - " "

Lord Harwood Fell, sworn to Stannis - hypothermia on the way to Stannis' Battle of Moscow re-enactment.

Yellow Dick, Bolton man - killed by the washerwomen.

Little Walder, bully - killed by person(s) unknown.

Luton, Bolton man - wasn't quiet enough about his disembowelment for Ramsay.

Holly, "washerwoman" -meets some crossbow bolts on the Walls of Winterfell.

Frenya*, "washerwoman" - is probably not up to beating six guards...

Barsena, pit figher - boared to death.

Yurkhaz mo Yunzak, top banana of Yunkai'i - trampled by his own slaves.

Nurse, slavemaster - rides the Pale Mare.

Yezzan Zo Qaggaz, big banana of the Yunkai'i - ditto.

Cromm, Asha's man - freezes to death on the way to Stannis' Battle of Moscow re-enactment.

Groleo, admiral without a fleet - decapitated as a message to Dany.

Khrazz, pit fighter, bodyguard, ignorant of the utility of armour - gaps in knowledge amended by Barristan.

Maester Kerwin, Crows Eye's spy - boarding pass cancelled mid-voyage by Victarion.

Ser Patrek of King's Mountain, blatant piece of fanservice :P - Wun Wun's ragdoll.

Jon Snow, Lord Commander of the Night's Watch* - failed to adequately monitor staff morale.

Quentyn Martell, apprentice veterinarian - crisped while attempting an unauthorised release in the lizard pen.

Maester Pycelle, grumpy old hack - prop in Varys' pantomime act.

Kevan Lannister, the dependable Lannister - audience for same.

*provisional deaths

Roughly by order of death, I compiled from two separate lists so it's not chronological in the middle, but I don't care. Only named characters who died in the course of the books, so Ramsay's girls and Quent's other companions don't make it, though I've let Hazzea in because it was recent. I've almost certainly missed a few, please feel free to point them out.

Surprisingly low death toll for named characters, 35 not that much above AFFC's low. Martin's smite button tends to fall on the unnamed extras, giving much bloodier tale to the reader than this list bears out.

You're missing a few deaths. I'm rereading ADwD now and the 6 Unsullied who were killed in an early Dany chapter(including Missandi's brother) were all named. You also missed Groat, Penny's brother. And Penny's dog Crunch also was killed. There are a bunch of minor,unimportant, named deaths peppered in the book.

I love this list.

A few others would be:

The Butcher-King of Astapor, forgot his name. And I think the two leaders that came after him were also named. Also the guy who tried to kill Drogon, the so called hero. His name is revealed post-mortem.

King Cleon. King Cleon the Second. King Cutthroat comes after that his the first Cleon's mistress, called Queen Whore. They all die.

Not sure about the hero's name.

Ned

Catelyn

Maester Cressen

Pate

That arse from the NW who died when the Others came (name escapes me)

Can't think of anymore.

Arys Oakheart, and the Black Brother you're thinking of was Will.

Horza your list rocks..."Didn't fear the Weeper" is priceless!

I suppose Martin gets his rep because he killed Ned, which was horrifying to me at the time, but alas necessary if you are going to have a story. Also killing Robb and Cat (UnCat is another matter) and for my Lady. Lady was a heartless killing. The killing of Ned was quite shocking though for many and set the tone even if GRRM has not killed off that many main characters of late. That, and the threat is always there. I suspect we will get many more deaths of major characters soon. Besides he can only kill off so many major peeps...you have to have someone to write about ;-)

As for the dead coming back. I don't feel this is necessarily too contrived or overused as some others feel. In a world where news does not travel all that quickly, rumors are rampant, and being "dead" can be a good thing, it make sense that many people come back from the dead figuratively and literally in some cases. For example Arya. Everyone just assumes she is dead because they cannot find her and she is so young how can she possibly make it on her own.

I wasn't sure what to do with him since he dies so many times, so I just counted the first time he was said to have been killed.

I issue to you a new challenge: Draw a Frey family tree.

Skimmed the thread. No one mentioned Quentyn as a narrator that died, that I could see. Narrators (updated):

Prologues/Epilogues:

Will

Master Cressen

Chett

Merrett Frey

Pate

Varamyr Sixskins (lives on through One Eye)

Kevan Lannister

Other narrators:

Eddard Stark

Catelyn Stark (revived)

Arys Oakheart

Quentyn Martell

To whoever pointed out characters dying in their own chapters: Other than prologues and epilogues, I have long noticed this phenomenon. I stuck by it, but Theon always pissed me off because he was the exception - he did, after all, die at the end of his own chapter.

But then it turned out that that wasn't true. I've restored my faith in the theory that narrators don't die at the end of their own chapters.

To be fair, this is a thread that deserves to be bumped, IMO. I've referred to it a few times in the past, and I'm sure there are people seeing it now who wanted to know how many people died in ASOIAF.
