This British woman organized 200 funerals

Jeane has suffered a lot of grief personally.

A woman fascinated by cemeteries and death has described how she traveled the world to attend the funerals of 200 strangers, reports the New York Post. Jeane Trend-Hill, 55, from Islington, London, started attending funerals when she accidentally ran over one in 2012 when she walked into a church during a service.

Ms Jeane soon began visiting graves regularly and she claims local cemetery staff began asking her to attend funerals when a deceased person had no friends or family who could attend.

“I’m proud to be that person who attends strangers’ funerals when no one else can attend,” she said. The Independent.

“I’ve always been fascinated by death since I was a kid. We would go to cemeteries and I would walk around looking at all the graves. They’re like outdoor art galleries,” she added .

Attending the funerals of many strangers, Trend-Hill claimed to have “realized that everyone has a story to tell”. “Everyone has lived a life and should have someone around to remember them when they die,” she added.

His relatives gave him the nickname “rent-a-mourner” for his ability to bring up the bereaved.

“It’s a name they gave me and it’s kind of funny. Of course, I would never charge anyone for going to a funeral,” she said.

When Ms Trend Hill’s father died aged 14 and her mother died aged 20, she began to visit cemeteries more frequently.

Mme Jeane is so attached to the upkeep of cemeteries that she has traveled to Paris and Venice to see them.
