Thanks. That suggestion allows me to find there are already 306 
amenity=post_depot in the UK (according to taginfo.openstreetmap.org.uk) and 
while it doesn't have its own wiki page, searching "everything" led me to the 
post_office talk page
where it is suggested, which may explain the high number. 

There was also a relevant thread on this list in January 2014 "Royal Mail & 
Parcelforce delivery offices" which also suggested post_depot for delivery 

Thanks again,
