- Monsieur Alfonse
Monsieur Alfonse 'Allo 'Allo! character First appearance The Funeral Last appearance A Winkle in Time Portrayed by Kenneth Connor Information Occupation Undertaker & Deputy Mayor Nationality French
Monsieur Alfonse is Nouvion's undertaker, first being seen when local hero René Artois fakes his own death. Alfonse quickly falls in love with the latter's wife, Edith, and René has to propose to Edith or lose his café as everyone believes he is dead.
The undertaker's catchphrase is "Swiftly and with style", while announcing his services. In addition, he also has a "dicky ticker", which comes on every time something stressful (or arousing) happens, and also suffers from the less publicised "tricky truss". He admires René for all the brave work he does for the Resistance, and agrees to admire Edith from afar. When he finds out about René's affair with waitress Yvette he tells Edith, but René manages to fob her off with another excuse.
