Mystery Town/Village in Document:

The screenshot below was taken from my Ancestry account, however the highlighted name, town or village makes no sense, I cannot find any such place as Cockeram-Cogdon, Cockeram, or Cogdon, which I assume is a UK location.

 

I am presuming the "W" would be the county, which can only be Warwickshire, Wiltshire, or maybe West Yorkshire in 1917.

 

Could someone please check the original document on Fold 3, to see if it is a transcribing error, or typo, or if it shows something different, or the "county" in full.

 

TIA.

I believe that it is a reference to the file or list of names on the index

eg the list starts with the surname Cockeram and ends with Cogdon W, thus Coffey falls alphabetically between those

That was fast !!!!!

What you suggest had not even occurred to me :blush:, you may well be right, would still be good to know what the original says, to be 110% sure.
