Bertie Crapper was the youngest son of Albert and Pearl Crapper. The Crappers were the first family to inhabit 9 Coronation Street after it was built in 1902. Bertie was born in 1907, five months after his father and brother Jack's deaths in a mine disaster Weatherfield Main Colliery.

Pearl continued to work after Bertie was born and carried him in a sling around her shoulder as she went about her charring duties at the Rover's Return. Bertie died from tuberculosis in 1910.

Bertie 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".
