In the novel Sleeping Murder, Mr Narracott was the former head clerk of the real estate firm of Galbraith & Penderley in Dillmouth. He died the previous winter just before the events in the novel.

When Giles Reed inquired at the firm about whether his wife's father Kelvin Halliday could have rented Hillside some twenty years previously, Mr Penderley told him that the firm's records did not extend so far into the past, especially with short term rentals. Mr Narracott, on the other hand, had a remarkable memory and had worked at the firm for some 35 years. As such, he was was just about the only person who could have helped with the information. All the other employees at Galbraith & Penderley were relatively new.
