A recent California case of a woman’s personal loss shows how important it is to document incidents and events related to the cremation of deceased individuals. In California, there are several advocacy groups put together to protect the rights of survivors of the deceased. Sadly, a range of incidents can still occur involving the separation of those cremated from their loved ones in the form of misplaced or stolen ashes.

In a recent case against Bank of America affiliates, a California woman is pursuing her legal rights after representatives took her dead husband’s ashes from her home during the process of a foreclosure. People experience this type of situation more regularly than some might think, but, in many cases, the loss of cremated ashes occurs due to the negligence of a funeral home or mortuary business. In these cases, the incident is often referred to as funeral home abuse in which a business abuses the rights of its clients in a significant way while disrespecting the remains of their family members.
