Yes, provided the Stratford numbers are available.

I had exactly that, then got the Linx for $50 off Amazon, and added a new
cordless set with its own answering machine. If the other line is busy, you
can call from the second one.

The Ooma HD will be the same price as the Linx and will save you buying a
second cordless set (~$60). But the cordless set will have 2 handsets and
an answering machine. So, your call.
