The starting point for finding headstones and other memorials.
Matlock & District researchers are fortunate as the majority
of commemorative memorials in and around the churches and chapels
of Matlock and Matlock Bath have been transcribed by either the
Derbyshire Ancestral Research Group or the Derbyshire Family
History Society, especially valuable as some of the buildings
are no longer places of worship. So even if only the surname
is found here, the memorial inscription can still be obtained
by approaching one or other society for the transcript.
