- When Deborah goes to the funeral with Jessie.
- The ladies of Cranford donating their candles to Doctor Harrison so he can perform his operation on Jem Hearne's broken arm. Complete with an uncharacteristically heartwarming line from Deborah: "You're not in London, Doctor Harrison. You're in Cranford now."
- Captain Brown's gift of a wooden coal shovel to Deborah as thanks for taking care of Jessie in his absence.
- Major Gordon gave Jessie a bunch of anemones. He had courted her and she had accepted him before, but then had broken their engagement, having to take care of her ill sister. And now she receives anemones which means "love ever steadfast"... Major Gordon, that is well played. Jessie's feelings are genuine and it feels great seeing her happy.

- Mr. Carter's last will, that helped both Lady Ludlow and Harry with the money he had invested.

- Miss Galindo asking Harry to come live with her.
- The final scene of Return to Cranford, with everybody happy and dancing a waltz in the rebuilt assembly rooms, showing that no matter what changes may come about, Cranford will endure. A shining example of Earn Your Happy Ending done perfectly, and capped off by this line from Miss Matty, when asked how Cranford can survive so much and still keep going:
Miss Matty: Love, Mr Buxton. It is the final word.
