On Record of Marriage

Would it be OK to translate this as "Sole Civil Registry of Madrid?" I don't feel totally comfortable with this.

Thanks,

Sole Births, Deaths & Marriages Registry of Madrid.
Explanation:
In my 20 years as sworn translator I've never seen a certificate from the UK or Ireland issued by a Registry with the name other the one I mentioned in my answer. Although the dictionaries mention "Civil Registry" I still have to see a document issued by such a body. Good luck.
