Played by: William Moore
Appeared: 1969 - 1972

Betty's police sergeant husband who policed the local area. We first saw him moving into the Corner Shop flat. In May 1970, he returned home to find Betty being terrorised by ex-convict Keith Lucas (Cyril was his arresting officer), and furious at this, attacked Lucas with an iron bar, narrowly avoiding killing him. Cyril was hauled before a disciplinary committee, and the next month he was retired from the force on a full pension, and he and Betty moved into 37 Hillside Crescent.


We didn't see much of Cyril after that, and he died of a heart attack in February 1974.
