Here is a link to a web page containing The data sets in the Aalen, Borgan, Gjessing textbook.

Thanks to Per Andersen and Orwulf Borgan, we also have a more complete version of the famous malignant melanoma dataset, which is usually presented in an abridged form that does not allow for the reproduction of results seen in several well-known papers, such as Andersen (1982, Biometrics) and Arjas (1988, JASA).

There is also the oropharynx carcinoma dataset from the Kalbfleisch and Prentice (2002) book.
