Swedish term or phrase: F stadsdirektör
I am having trouble finding out what the abbreviation "F" stands for here. This official apparently performed the ceremony (in Umeå). Grateful for any suggestions.

A guess that it is short for "föredetta". Probsably not F for "framlidne" (deceased).

agree  Madeleine MacRae Klintebo: and it would probably be a bit difficult for a deceased person to perform anything including ceremonies

agree  Kent Andersson: Either it's a typo "f.d. = före detta" or it might an abbrevation of "förre" wich means basically the same. Either way former would work.
