Hetty Harris was the mother of Ivy Makepiece, matriarch of 11 Coronation Street from 1902 to 1938. Hetty was a widow and lived at the docks on Bealer Street.

In 1910, Hetty was evicted from her house for not paying the rent and dumped herself on the Makepieces in Coronation Street. Ivy realised she'd be stuck with Hetty until she died and spent months poisoning her with arsenic to kill her off. She died in 1911, just as industrial action spread all over Weatherfield and the grave diggers were among those to down tools. Hetty's body remained in the house until the long strike was over.

Hetty 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".
