Definition of registry office in English:
Another term for register office (in informal and non-official use).
- At present those who marry in church have their marriage registered for them by the church while those who go through a civil ceremony sign the register in the registry office.
- One result of the new rules is that it will take out of the churches weddings that only take place in church because it's a more amenable venue than a registry office.
- We married in a registry office and arranged the service of dedication for the next day, in Sophie's local church.
