Undertaker William Shawcross joins a dating agency in the hope of finding his ideal match, and is instantly attracted to put-upon midwife Mary Gilcrest, but she's less than keen to go on a date as she has her hands full with a mother-to-be suffering from a terminal illness. After a lackluster first meeting, Mary agrees to see William again and a spark ignites between the fledgling couple, only for tragedy to strike when her patient dies, and the undertaker is called in to remove the body, revealing William's unappealing occupation in the process.
