More about

Derbyshire Record Office was established in 1962 to look after and provide access to the County’s records. It provides the archive service for Derbyshire, Derby City and Diocese of Derby and is located in New Street, Matlock in the former Ernest Bailey Grammar School a short distance from the main County Council offices for Derbyshire. Derbyshire Record Office holds original documents pertaining to and originating in Derbyshire dating from the 12th century to the present day. There are four to five miles of records, which include an oil painting produced by a local amateur artist. The service collects records, including paper, parchment, film, paintings and photographs, from a variety of sources, which can contribute to a better understanding of the history and development of the County of Derbyshire. In practice, the service seeks to acquire records from a wide range of organisations, societies and individuals, including local government, churches, schools, hospitals, businesses, societies, charities, families and individuals.
