Hi Fran
There is no rule that the same answer cannot be in a crossword more than once,although this is not usual.
If you let us know the wording of the other clue,we can look at it and may be of assistance in confirming the answer or otherwise.
Regards
Joker

That's an odd one, because a hamlet isn't defined as a deserted village -- it's a community smaller than a village, ususally without a church.

Hi Fran
I agree with Bullfrog re hamlet.
How about HAMLIN? Deserted when all the children followed the pied piper out of it. I think that this is still enacted weekly at the present day in the village.

The town in the Pied Piper is actually "Hamelin" not Hamlin, or it could be Hameln which is the German version but Hamlin does not appear in the poem by Robert Browning nor in the story by the Brothers Grimm.

Ah Campanilla we are in a pernickety mood today.
Yes you are correct(as usual)but on various German sites Hamlin is shown as alternative to Hameln.
Kind regards
