These extracts from ten Derbyshire Trade Directories, dated between 1821 and 1895, are intended merely as 'warts and all' transcripts. No attempt has been made to correct errors, whether obvious or not, although some liberty has been taken with punctuation. Nor has any rearrangement of the text been done to facilitate searching for particular names. The production of indexes is a separate exercise, and proceeds as time permits. At the same time, I should perhaps point out that, while this is not a facsimile reproduction, the formatting has been designed to make the entries clear, without introducing any radical departure from the original texts. The occasional comment in square brackets thus [...] is mine. Nor has any attempt has been made to ascertain the copyright status of any of these directories, and the extracts should therefore only be employed for personal use. I have tried to be accurate, but errors have undoubtedly crept in. For these, I apologise, and would appreciate notification if you come across any. If any readers have access to other 19th Century Trade Directories covering any parts of South Derbyshire, I would appreciate information as to the location of such copies.
