Mrs Cresswell was the wife of Dirk Cresswell. She and Dirk had at least two sons together.

In 1997, Dirk, as a Muggle-born wizard, arranged to have his family tree falsified to avoid persecution by the Muggle-Born Registration Commission. Unfortunately, Albert Runcorn uncovered the plan, and Dirk was arrested. Arthur Weasley confronted Runcorn (who, at the time, was actually Harry Potter under Polyjuice Potion), suggesting that, if Dirk made it out of Azkaban alive, Runcorn would have to answer to Dirk's wife and their sons.

Dirk managed to escape before being imprisoned, but, after a few months on the run, he was caught and murdered by Snatchers, leaving Mrs Cresswell a widow.


Notes and references

  1. Mrs Cresswell wasn't imprisoned in Azkaban by the Muggle-Born Registration Commission in 1998, meaning that she isn't Muggle-Born. As well as this, their children are listed as half-Blood, meaning she must be a different blood status to her husband.
