What kinds of searches can you do?
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.
We offer a standard service:
- cost £11
- can be posted 2nd class or collected from Royal Oak House after five working days
Royal Oak House, Market place, Derby DE1 3AR
- Monday to Thursday, 9am to 4.30pm
- Friday 9am to 4pm
What information do I need to provide?
The following information would be useful:
- the year in which a particular event was registered
- the place where the event was registered
- the name of the individual or individuals involved.
For further advice on records of Derby city or genealogy, please contact us or see the government website for researching family history.
