Citing a UK Certified Copy of an Entry of Marriage

I hope this won't come across as a stupid question, but I have a document that is not quite fitting into a citation format.  It is a Certified Copy of an Entry of Marriage.  My father was married to his first wife in 1943.  It was a civil ceremony.  The record is a vital record of marriage, but not a parish marriage certificate as was issued in a church.  The marriage was solomnized in The Registry Office for the Maidstone Registry District in Kent County.

The document contains most of the information that a parish certificate would have except that it was not a church record.  It also has much more information, including the actual date of the marriage, than the UK indexes have.

Any suggestions on how to properly cite this are appreciated.

Thanks!

Geoff, check out EE 9.48 (pp. 474-75 in 3d ed.). This covers UK B-M-D certificates--which are typically certified copies.
