Professional Mourners
Professional mourner are people, usually women,  who are  paid to attend and mourn at a funeral. This practice  has largely disappeared from Western culture.

Historically, in Greece and the Middle East, professional mourners were compensated to lament or deliver a eulogy. Mentioned in the Bible, the occupation is widely invoked in literature.

To our knowledge, today no company provides a professional mourners service.

If you know of such a service, please let us know!
