Where is Francis Hay, Salisbury
« on: Friday 08 January 21 17:31 GMT (UK) »
I am looking at a death report in the newpaper of a lady who had died "at Francis Hay, near Salisbury"  in 1940.

In 1939 she is at "longhigg" Shaftesbury Road, Wilton  according to the transcription.

Just out of interest,, can anyone identify these locations?  Google Maps isn't too much help  :(

First of all, Salisbury is in Wiltshire, so I will move this post to the right board.  :)

Shaftsbury Road in Wilton is the main A30 west.

I have now read her Probate Record and it is actually Cherry Croft, Francis Way, Salisbury, so I have located that road,  I wonder if the house still exists.

It is Ethel Mary Whitemore, and sister Olive Jessie, living together in 1939.

I am also told they were both buried in Wilton Churchyard and Cemetery, according to the Wiltshire Memorial Inscription Index, but I can't find anything further, have looked on findagrave.

Have looked on Postcode Finder and it is number 12 Francis Way. 

Any ideas re the other address "longhigg" Shaftesbury Road, Wilton

Thanks for your help, it is always lovely to identify where someone actually lived.
