Li Ch'in, 36, from Tianjin in northern China has employed 30 out-of-work actors to provide the service.
Ch'in's package includes four 'mourners' for £300 an hour - targeted at people who do not have the time to visit their relatives' service in person, according to Stylist magazine.
The business also caters for special events.
Ch'in explained: "I teach them how to cry, wail and sob at the drop of a hat so they sound very mournful."
Meanwhile in America, drive-through funeral parlours exist to let mourners pay respects to the deceased without getting out of their car.
