Spouse(s) Madge Narkey (1917)
First appearance Unseen

Dinky Low and his wife Madge moved into 1 Coronation Street on their wedding day on 3rd November 1917. They were childhood sweethearts and had grown up together on Jubilee Terrace. The ceremony took place three years later than planned because of the war; it wasn't until Dinky was decorated for bravery and made up to Sergeant that he could take special leave to marry Madge. He left again the next day, but never saw his wife again as she died from internal bleeding three days after giving birth to a stillborn baby they conceived on their wedding night. After the war, Dinky left for London and he arranged with the landlord for Albert and Bessie Tatlock to be given the tenancy of No.1, and left them his sideboard as a wedding present.

Dinky first appeared in Daran Little and Bill Hill's "Weatherfield Life", published in 1992. Other information is derived from Little's follow-up book, "Around the Coronation Street Houses".
