"Lying there with their eyes wide open! Cold as ice! Still in their dinner things!"
—The maid, rousing the Little Hangleton villagers after she found the three Riddles dead[src]

The Riddles' maid was a Muggle woman who worked in the Riddle House.


This woman was born sometime before 1943, presumably in Great Britain. She worked as a maid for the Riddle family sometime in her later life, and lived either in the village of Little Hangleton, or in the Riddle House.[2] At daybreak on a fine day in the summer of 1943, she found her masters dead, with a look of terror on their faces and still wearing their dinner clothes from the night before. She ran away from the house, rousing all the villagers she saw in her way.[2] Albus Dumbledore later explained the Riddles' deaths to Harry Potter in 1997.[3]
