If the full MI is not published on
this website, or you cannot read the inscription in the
churchyard, you cannot find it or are unable to visit Matlock,
there are several ways you can find out more about the
MIs for the surnames listed.
But before you contact one of the societies
named below, I may be able to help further as I can check
the Christian name on lists I have and tell you who to
email me if you would like help, though I'm not prepared
to do a blanket search as some surnames have more than
100 people listed.
1. Locations & Notes has
details of which group transcribed the MIs of a particular location.
2. Derbyshire Ancestral Research Group (DARG).
Please contact them for further information about their transcripts,
but see below first.
- A copy of their St Giles Church, Matlock, transcriptions
may be viewed at their Birchwood Chapel Headquarters, at
County Hall Local Studies Library and at the Society of
Genealogists. You will need written permission from the
DARG to photocopy from the books held at both County Hall
LSL and SoG.
Further information is on their respective web sites.

- If you are seeking an MI published by the Derbyshire
Ancestral Research Group (i.e. an MI in St. Giles' Churchyard)
please contact the webmistress before
you write to them as I should be able to provide the reference,
if it is not yet on this web site, or help with Christian
Requests to DARG should be accompanied by an SAE, or IRCs
and a small donation for the work involved. Cheques should
be made out to the Derbyshire Ancestral Research Group.

to pay a research fee.
4. Burial information relating to MIs:
- Those wishing to
enquire about burial details relating to MIs are recommended
to contact the Derbyshire Record Office in the first instance.
A few Matlock Bath Holy Trinity surnames have an asterisk
* beside them to indicate that names have been listed by
the church, but do not appear on the mfc.
