Corrie may hardman

May Hardman, the first ever character to die on the show.

In the shows 56-year history, the death toll for the cobbled backstreet of Coronation Street has been quite high, especially since around 2002 when it became a haven for serial killers such as Richard Hillman. Seems when you drive into the borough of Weatherfield the sign says "Greater Manchester Borough Of Weatherfield. Twinned with Midsomer". Here is a list of deaths in the show since 1960 with the cause of death and age at death. This list includes unseen characters.

This also includes a separate list of characters who had moved away from Coronation Street but were later said to have died, but the death date is unknown, for example Frank Barlow and Minnie Caldwell. Frank was said to have died by April 1975 and Minnie was said to have died by 2008.
