Can you help us locate houses on the 1911 Census ?
On the census returns for villages like Coddenham it is sometimes difficult to determine which house is being referred to largely, of course, because houses were not numbered and many were not named. On a downloable PDF of the 1911 Census linked here we have attempted to give the modern name to a house. Can you help us by identifying the house by the occupants and therefore giving us the modern house name ?
Burial List (Churchyard)
The downloadable PDF linked here is an Index Of Burials compiled from a handwritten original. Unfortunately several parts were unreadable . This list is for the graveyard by the church and not the more recent graveyard near the three-cocked-hat
On the 1911 Census the habitation listed as The Crown Inn is our house Gryffon Houise and the next door house The Old Dower House. Both houses were formerly joined together as one.
