The term Civil Registry is not commonly used in Great Britain. The normal, and widely-used term is Civil Registration, where birth, marriage and deaths certificates are recorded in local registers at a local Registrar's office. While Scotland has a different historical set of operating procedures from that of England and Wales, the terminology utilised is identical in both these jurisdictions. Northern Ireland [Ulster] has had a similar history for registration, and uses much the same terminology. The Republic of Ireland, having started with a UK basis, will also, in my opinion, be using the same terminology. So, the UK and Ireland user is most likely to not be looking for a term such as Civil Registry, and instead will be looking for Civil Registration. If Civil Registry is the usual term in the USA, then perhaps the heading ought to be "Civil Registry or Civil Registration" or, putting it another way "Civil Registry/Civil Registration".
