Remarks at the beginning of the Register:

Mr GODDARD was Minister at Ilkeston and used to preach occasionally at Derby when there was no settled Minister here. He has been dead many years. Edward BUXTON was for a time a member of the Church to which this register belonged. I knew him. He has been dead many years. - Sgd J G PIKE, Derby, 7 Jan 1837

James TAYLOR whose signatures are connected with several entries on the following pages was my predecessor here and Minister from about the year 1799 to 1807. He is now living at Hinckley. The entries are in his handwriting which I know very well. - Sgd J G PIKE, Derby, 7 Jan 1837
