Sarah Buck and her family inhabited 9 Coronation Street from 1910 to 1926.

Sarah, husband Ned, and children Larry, Joe and Alice, lived in a one-room tenement in Inkerman Street before moving to Coronation Street. All of them worked at Hardcastle's Mill but Ned was also an embalmer and cheap coffin maker, and Sarah a midwife who carried out abortions and so they were a great asset to their neighbours.

Both Buck sons survived the war but the women did not fare so well; in 1915 Alice fell pregnant by Vic Piggott and carried the baby to term, despite Sarah's pleas to let her abort it. Ned endured the situation for a week before throwing Alice and baby Ben out on the street. In 1919, Sarah died from alcohol poisoning.

Sarah 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".
