The driver was shocked to find a £70 parking ticket, issued whilst he had been helping colleagues load a hearse parked on the same premises.
The driver peeled the ticket off the windscreen before collecting family mourners.
James Hardcastle, managing director of The Carriage Master, which supplied the car and driver, said: “At 26ft long with six doors, highly polished and immaculate, it’s obvious this big black car parked outside a funeral directors is part of a funeral procession.
“The driver arrived at the funeral home, went inside and was only there for seven or eight minutes.”
Matt Jones, parking services officer at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “It wasn’t clear to the parking warden that it was being used at that time as part of a funeral.
“If it was being used for that purpose, we are able to exercise discretion and recommend that the funeral company in question follows the appeals process outlined on the ticket.”
