Derbyshire wills

From 1858, proving wills (and granting letters of administration if there was no will) became a civil responsibility. In Derbyshire, this work was carried out by Derby Probate Registry. We hold the records of the registry, including copies of all wills proved at Derby between 1858 and 1928. To find out if we hold a specific will, you can search our wills database by surname, area and year of probate.


To request a scanned copy of a will, use the order form below.

The price per page is 30p. 

Copies can be sent by email at no additional cost, or by post for an additional 30p per page, plus postage (see postage prices below).
