Graveyard Survey

St Edmund’s Church Graveyard Survey was undertaken by Castleton Historical Society in 1981. The survey can be useful for family research but the accuracy of the inscriptions cannot be guaranteed as many are worn and some barely discernible.  If you are planning to visit the Graveyard we recommend that you note the advice given in the summary of the Survey in advance.

The bulk of Parish Records are held at Derbyshire Records Office in Matlock.

We regret that neither Castleton Historical Society nor St Edmund’s Church have resources to carry out research requests.  Some useful websites for researching family history are listed below.  Other links may be added from time to time so please visit again.
