William Turner was the older brother of Alan Turner. He was mentioned by Alan a few times by him in the 1980s and he was always more clever than him. William had died of a heart attack before Alan arrived in 1982 and was never seen in the Emmerdale programme.



William Turner was born in about 1930 in Chichester, Sussex to Mr Turner and Mrs Turner. He was more clever than his younger brother Alan Turner born in 1935. William made money out of cheroots (cigars). He died in the 1970s of a heart attack. Alan Turner named one of his horses after William.
