Albert Crundall

Albert Crundall played by James Hoare

Tanned & tattooed coachman in the employ of the Fitzhuberts. Loyal, straight-talking – an honourable & hard-working man. “Dragged up” in an orphanage along with his younger sister Sara, who he hasn’t seen in years (& has no idea is so close by at Appleyard College). Since then he’s spent time with sailors, in lock-ups, drifted here & there. The Fitzhuberts treat him well. He’s working with horses. He can’t complain. Albert is comfortable in his skin, content with his lot in life.
