The Derby Register Officer holds all the births, marriage and death records for the Derby Registration District from 1 July 1837 to the present day. We can also access some of the Shardlow district records as well as the sub-districts of Spondon, Melbourne and Repton.
We can conduct a five year search within your certificate application fee. Unfortunately, we are unable to conduct an open ended general search of our indexes, as manual searches are time-consuming
Certificates for successful searches can be provided at a charge of £10 per certificate for a standard two day service or £20 for an express hour service
