UK funeral turns into graveyard rave

Funerals are notoriously sombre affairs. Although often billed as a celebration of life, there’s usually little in the way of entertainment – especially a DJ.

One funeral in Witton Cemetery in Birmingham recently caused a stir online when footage appeared to show a DJ serving up dancehall grooves to attendees, who are eager to move as music blasts out of the speakers.

Almost instantly, the funeral party begins dancing energetically at the grave site in honour of the deceased. Judging by the simultaneous reaction of the crowd, we doubt there was any “turning in their grave” over the joyous outburst of unorthodox mourning. 

The video, obtained by Birmz Is Grime, has divided opinion since being uploaded to social media, where it has been viewed over 40,000 times in less than 24 hours. 

As reported by Birmingham Live, some web users praised the unique tribute to the deceased, while others accused people of being disrespectful by dancing on other people’s graves.
