New data on website

Another two sets of cemetery data added

The latest checked data for Nottingham Road and Uttoxeter Road Cemeteries is now available for members to search on our website. Uttoxeter Road is from 1922 to 1932, there is only one more lot to go on to complete that cemetery. Nottingham Road is a lot bigger and taking a lot of time to check, but there are another 3000 entries from 1864 to 1867 to have a look through. Hopefully two or three more cemeteries are coming to the end of checking and they will be uploaded as soon as practicable. Non members can search for a name, but full data is only available to members or to those who have purchased credits.


---New Publication

Diary of Joshua Smith, 1741-45, now available

The diary was edited some years ago by Edwin Welch, a professional archivist, but was unable to find a publisher. It contains information about Derby and its people, stopping tantalisingly short of the arrival of the Scots army in 1745. It is available in the data download section.
