* ChristmasCake:
** Jessie Brown has lost her bloom, nursing her ill mother and then sister. She had a suitor but turned him down because she felt an obligation to her family. Her father never noticed the relationship and quite insensitively tells her that she never even had a chance, even though he loves her deeply and is a caring parent.
** Averted with Miss Mary Smith. She appears to be in her mid-twenties, though her age is never stated. She says about herself that she's young and has no reason to feel dissatisfied with her lot. Her young step-mother desperately wants to marry her off, but Mary only feels embarrassed by her vulgar matchmaking. She never says never, but it would have to feel right, and she also says she hasn't yet felt a desire to have children of her own. In ''Return to Cranford'', she gets engaged, but breaks it off and decides to [[spoiler:move to London to pursue a career as a writer.]]



* MaidenAunt: Miss Matty is not related to Mary Smith and she does not have any nieces or nephews, but her role within the community and to her firends fit the trope. She doesn't have any children, but she takes interest in others and tries to take care of them.



* OldMaid: Several of the Cranford ladies are unmarried older women.

* BreakTheCutie: Miss Matty gets her heart broken at ''least'' once an episode. Seeing as how she's played by JudiDench, tears from viewers follow.
