We study diagrammatic reducibility for the relative group presentations Rn(k, l, ε) = H, x | t 3 x k t 2 x ε(k+l) where H = t | t n , n ≥ 7, k ≥ 1, l ≥ 0 and ε = ±1. We apply our results to classify finiteness for the group Gn(k, l, ε) defined by Rn(k, l, ε) apart from the two exceptional cases (n, k, l, ε) = (7,2,1,-1) and (9,1,1,-1).
