Lilian is Lady Penelope's cook, and lives at Creighton-Ward Manor in Foxley Heath.

She and Parker (Her Ladyship's butler/chauffeur) are friendly rivals, of sorts; he invariably calls her Lil, as they spar back and forth in the Manor's kitchen.

Beneath that gruff exterior, it appears Parker harbors a genuine fondness for her. In The Cham-Cham, he fancies "taking cook out for a punt," on his afternoon off (perhaps the way to a man's heart truly is through his stomach!).

Lilian appears in Vault of Death, and she also makes a cameo appearance in the Thunderbirds 1965 episode The Stately Homes Robberies (where Lady Penelope refers to her by her proper name!).
