When you visit, you can take copies from microfilms and computers on a self-service basis.
We can supply photocopies of original text documents, subject to copyright restrictions.
Sometimes it isn't possible to make photocopies without damaging the original document. In these cases we can often scan or photograph the item and provide digital or printed copies.
All copying of photographic material held at Derbyshire Record Office is done by Picture the Past. If you wish to order a copy of a photograph, please use the digital photography service order form below.
It is also possible to order copies of documents without visiting the Record Office in person. Please contact the duty archivist on 01629 539209 or email email@example.com to request a quote for copying. For ordering copies of Derbyshire wills, please see the wills database.
If you are researching family history and would like copies of entries from the parish registers, but do not know the date of the entry, please use our research service.
