Those two aren't entirely independent but each provides details the other

I haven't encountered anyone using it but then I've rarely been in a
situation where such a room was discussed.

When I search for "mourning room" with google i get a few links
to pages actually using the term and a lot of links to pages about living
rooms, sitting rooms and parlours.  Nothing for chapels of rest (or
whatever we end up calling them), just rooms in private houses.
Google search results are personalized, but I can't think of any reason it
would be giving me these particular results.  So it appears that google
thinks a mourning room is a room in a private house.
