A funeral director has been sacked after he was spotted having sex with a female worker beside coffins at an undertakers.

Christopher Grimes was ‘caught red-handed’ by shocked employees in Hamilton & Marshall Funeral Directors in Newport on the Isle of Wight. 

The 64-year old grandfather and the woman admitted to bosses that they had been taking part in the ‘inappropriate’ sex act.

The couple were then sacked for ‘unprofessional conduct’ after romping in the room where the coffins are stored. 

A source told the Mirror: You expect a funeral home to be a professional and dignified place, but that couldn’t have been further from the truth.

‘It’s the talk of the town. He’s no longer working there and they’ve tried to hush the whole thing up.’ 

Grimes, who was in a long-term relationship with the woman, has not conducted any funerals since he was suspended.

The woman was also told to leave after admitting to the sex act.

The company Dignity, based in Birmingham, said: ‘Following an investigation [the pair] admitted an inappropriate sex act took place on our premises, and he was dismissed.

‘The female member of staff also no longer works for us.’

Mr Grimes declined to comment but his partner said she was ‘standing by him’, according to the Mirror. 

The undertakers boasts a ‘professional team of funeral directors’ on its website, offering more than 50 years experience with prices of £1,995 for a basic package.
