​Would it be possible to get a table of the yearly death rates per year in the U.K since 1990 up until the end of December 2020 ?

We said

Thank you for your request.

We are responsible for the provision of mortality statistics for England and Wales. National Records Scotland (NRS) and Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA) are responsible for statistics pertaining to Scotland and Northern Ireland. They can be contacted at foi@nrscotland.gov.uk and info@nisra.gov.uk respectively.

We publish annual mortality rates in an ad hoc dataset that was published on 12 January 2021: Annual deaths and mortality rates, 1938 to 2020 (provisional). This provides crude mortality rates (per 100,000 population) from 1990-2020 (please note, 2020 data is still provisional) in England and Wales:
