Somewhere in South Wales (Great Britain), the funeral company Thomas, Thomas, Thomas & Thomas run their business. They are lead by their father Ivor, who’s terribly afraid of corpses. He isn’t much better with the living. His wife ran off a long time ago with an Oompa Loompa (yes the one from "Charlie And The Chocolate Factory").
The three sons aren’t any better. The rude Percy just has served five years in prison for misusing corpses! He thinks that he’s a rock star and he dressed up the corpses like Roy Orbison and took them on tour.
Arwell is obsessed with his car (a Fiat Panda) and some aging rock star called Shakin' Stevens.
The last of the three Gwynne is mentally aged like a child and leaks drops of urine whenever he speaks.
