In 1975, Frank Barlow (1960-64 and guest appearances in 1967 and 1971) was mentioned as having died, four years after Frank Pemberton (who played Frank) had died. It wasn't mentioned exactly when Frank Barlow had died, so he died sometime between 1971 and the mention of his death by his son Ken in April 1975. Frank Pemberton had died the month after transmission of a one-episode appearance, reprising his part for Valerie Barlow's funeral.I wish the show would do something to mark her passing. Even if it's just a small scene with Rita telling Ken that she heard about Hilda.
I can't recall if Corrie has ever done this with a character that died after they left the show.
