Wikidata

Used to mark a  register office, where births, marriages and deaths may be registered, and marriage and partnership ceremonies may be performed.

In the UK, a Register office is distinct from a registrar, who may have an office inside another municipal building solely for the purpose of taking registrations, not performing ceremonies.

How to map

Mark the boundary of the register office using an Area area or place a Node node in the middle of the site.

Tag it with office=government + government=register_office.
