Apologies if this has been raised before. I am trying to process UK county data. My interpretation of this wiki page is that the ceremonial county of Cornwall should be mainland Cornwall plus the Isles of Scilly, and the administrative county should be just mainland Cornwall.

What we seem to actually have, is as follows:

Relation 57537, boundary=administrative, admin_level=6, name=Cornwall
(Mainland Cornwall)

Relation 1987628, boundary=ceremonial, name=Cornwall
(JUST the Isles of Scilly - appears to EXCLUDE mainland Cornwall!)

Surely the ceremonial county should include mainland Cornwall - or am I misreading the data?
I'm very new to working with OpenStreetMap.

Still the same issue, I'm afraid, as of July, 2015. Does it help any to know that way id 2619319494 and relation id 151362048 (both for Cornwall) are class=boundary, type=ceremonial?

Have you got the correct ids? Neither http://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/151362048 or http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/2619319494 seem to exist. Nor can I see anything immediately wrong with the two relations mentioned in the original question.

You were correct and the data was wrong. I've added the administrative relation for Cornwall as a member to the ceremonial relation. I think this should be sufficient, rather than adding all the ways again, though I'm sure if I'm wrong someone will correct me both here and by correcting the ceremonial relation.

sorry. it's nominatim, but i'm seeing openstreetmap in the reply ...

i was led astray by "ceremonial" in 2 of the 4 entries. i could not find "ceremonial" in a list of osm classes/types wiki, so that led me to start a search, which led me to help.openstreetmap.org, which led me to where i am now.

i reckon this is a nominatim issue. again, apologies for the false alarm. - go
