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 ?

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

    I have just found your site, a-googling Coddenham. You have a query on the 1911 Census about identifying houses and occupants. You have marked a query about the correct location for Hill Farm, the home of the Salmon family. Ernest Edwin Salmon was my grandfather, his daughter, Margaret my mother. Yes, the correct address is Hill Farm, The Green, Coddenham (now Coddenham Green?) and the Miles family farm there now, having purchased the farm from the Salmon family in the mid 1920’s, I believe.

      Thank you Valerie for helping out with that information. I can now remove the question mark ! Let us know if you ever come across any additional information that you think would be useful to us
