I've found that several parishes, perhaps upto a dozen or more, are systematically missing the parents' names from the transcripts for Baptisms post-1813.

The images appear to be mostly taken from microfilm, although the register of baptisms, 1813-1915, for Cromford, Saint Mary, which was damaged, has undergone rescanning in addition to the microfilm version.

FindMyPast are still missing the collection of wills taken from the Peculiar courts for the Lichfield diocese

Yes, the microfilms made by the LDS, and until recently available to view on FamilySearch.
The irony!

But apparently without the Record Office's permission, hence they became restricted.

True, and I presume coverage may be more comprehensive on ancestry.
As we know, if something is available on FamilySearch take advantage while you can!

I've been searching the Derbyshire parish registers on Ancestry for a couple of days now.

I've noticed a few errors - search results showing one parish but linking to another parish's register, for example. Overall I wouldn't trust the search results yet, keep digging manually if a record you're expecting does not appear when you search.

I also note a couple of parishes I'm interested in are not included.

Thorpe, Feak & Townsend (Norfolk) / Ormandy & Slater (Dalton-in-Furness) / Corner (Liverpool) / Wray (Lincolnshire) / Fidler, Bridge & Turner (Derbyshire)
