According to this article in the Telegraph, you can rent mourners for your funeral.
For £45 an hour, the fake mourners can be rented to cry for the duration of a funeral service in order to swell the numbers at funerals. Ian Robertson, the founder of Rent-a-Mourner, in Braintree, Essex, admits the idea may be unfamiliar to the British, although the phenomenon is popular in places such as Asia.
So how do rental mourners respond if someone asks how they knew the decedent? Maybe they could say: I work for him. That wouldn't really be a lie.
