The colon after "Big" is slanted - the lower dot is further to the right than the upper dot.
Maybe that is the case after (Inge), too.

It could be: (Inge):/es/89516

I was wondering whether "Inge" could actually be "Image" - it could be, for example, a microfiche reference.

Just an idea...

If the. "Big" does relate to bigamy, it may say "Big Mge" for bigamous marriage.

Assuming the Register was still being used in 1947 (as rationing was still in place then) it would have been relevant to record a marriage being declared invalid.

I don't think any sort of document imaging would have been used in the 1940s, so not that.
