I have been unable to fully decipher the entries listed below. Words shown as "-" are missing, shown as "?" are unreadable or guesses. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The original Wirksworth Parish Registers are held at Derbyshire Record Office, Matlock, Derbyshire. Volunteers could print out the list, take a large magnifying glass, ask for the Registers, the use of an Ultra-Violet light, and try their hand at deciphering. If you have any luck, please contact the transcriber:
