Planning a funeral but you are not sure to show enough people? Rent a Mourner, a service that hires people to cry at funerals, might be able to help you a lot in the funerals. A U.K.-based Rent a Mourner charges 68 US$ (About 6800 Pakistani Rupees) for two hours to get a small crowd to attend a funeral service and have them cry during it. The company has 20 people for hire and claims it has attracted 52 bookings in the U.K. since it began early last year.
“Our staff will meet with the client beforehand and agree on ‘the story’, so our staff will either have known the deceased professionally or socially,” Rent a Mourner founder Ian Robertson told The Telegraph. “They will be informed of the deceased’s background, achievements, failures, etc. so they can converse with other mourners with confidence.”
