You will participate in the WAKE, provide a testimony to the deceased, learn about the customs, oddities, and superstitions about ghosts and see authentic items from the Victorian era. To die unprepared, and not be mourned properly, was the greatest of tragedies and this is where you come in by becoming professional mourners called, “MUTES”that were used in the funeral procession so you had better PRACTICE UP ON YOUR WAILING AND CRYING as the louder and the more emotional it is, the greater honor is bestowed upon Silas, that is, if you are able to keep a straight face.
