Explanation:
CURP or Clave Única de Registro de Población is a Citizen Identity Number in my opinion...

Oficialia no. Office Number

c. oficial del registro civil = Registrar (simply put). C. stands for Ciudadano...

H. Ayuntamiento Constitucional = H. stands for Honorable, you could render it as City Hall, Town Hall, or City Council, the excess wording (Honorable and Constitucional) aren´t really necessary in my opinion for translating this into English.
