A Christmas Carol Wiki

Lucy Cratchit (also known as Gillian Cratchit in some versions) is one of the many children and the youngest daughter of Bob and Emily Cratchit, and sister to Martha, Belinda, Peter, Matthew, and Tiny Tim Cratchit.


Lucy is identified as a "little girl" who is spotted by Ebenezer Scrooge and the Ghost of Christmas Present. Despite living in a small house due to Scrooge not paying Cratchit enough money, Lucy is still happy with the family she already has.

After Scrooge raised Bob's salary and his family, Lucy lives a better life with her brother Tiny Tim cured of his illness.


  • Lucy is unnamed in the book
  • In some versions, Lucy's name is changed to Gillian.
