Copying and research service

We can supply copies of original documents or publications, subject to copyright restrictions. And undertake research on your behalf using published or original sources, including parish registers.


Copying and research orders are priced according to the amount of staff time they take to carry out.  Our minimum charge is £14 per half hour, including VAT.

Copies and research reports are usually sent to you via email. We can print the images and report if you prefer to have them on paper, or we can supply copies on CD. We aim to complete all orders within 28 working days.

Please check the Derbyshire Record Office catalogue to make sure we hold the records you're looking for. If you're still in doubt, please contact the duty archivist.

To order, please fill in the online order form.  We will respond within 10 working days to let you know how much your order will cost and how you can pay.

If you prefer to employ an independent researcher, please see the list of record agents attached to this page.

You can take advantage of our digitisation service if you'd like to have digital copies of your own old documents and photographs. For further information see digitising history.

Reproducing images

Under copyright regulations, copies of documents cannot be published in hard copy or electronic form without written permission.

We can only provide copies of documents for personal research purposes and not for commercial or publication purposes.

Prior approval from the depositor and copyright owner where necessary, via Derbyshire Record Office, must be sought before copies of documents may be published or used for purposes other than personal research.

To ask permission, please contact us. If permission is given, it will be on condition that appropriate acknowledgement is made.
