A Pretoria-based funeral home charges up to R150,000 to fulfil families' wishes during funerals, including serving booze.

As Briefly.co.za reported, Brothers & Sisters Funeral Home gained internet fame when a video of mourners enjoying alcohol at a funeral it organised went viral recently.

The Home's director, Lucky Makhubela, told Daily Sun that they charged that particular family R85,000.

The manager, Sello Aphane, added:

When a family approaches us, we ask them what the dead person liked, and if they would like to portray that person’s life during their final send-off. Then we do everything we can to give them what they ask for.

Six siblings teamed up to start the business in 2014, hence the name "brothers and sisters."

Makhubela said they cater for most budgets. However, their main target market is those "who can afford to pay."

Photos of a funeral posted on the Home's Facebook page indicate that families can also get a convoy of expensive cars if they so wish.

Makhubela added that they had to get the required permissions from the departments of Home Affairs and Health to run their business.
