Changes to registering to use Derbyshire Record Office
We are now part of the CARN (County Archives Research Network) registration scheme.
If you are a currently registered Derbyshire Record Office user, we will need to ask you to re-register with us.
However, if you already have a CARN ticket, please show it when visiting and you will not need to re-register.
These tickets are free; they are valid for four years and will give you access to any record office that belongs to the Research Network.
Photography in the searchroom
You are able to use your own camera to take photographs of documents in our public search room.
Buying a photography licence will allow unlimited photography. The licence will cost £5 for a day licence or £50 for an annual licence.
