Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question..
Have you ever seen the will to see what it states about any burial wishes?
Ok, if there are no specific burial instructions, then it is generally up to the executor as to what to do with the deceased's remains..
So if she didn't put it in the will, I hate to say it, but the executor gets to decide what to do with the ashes.. And I am virtually positive they haven't done anything simply because they don't want to spend the money....
I am very sorry that I don’t have better news, but please understand that I do have an ethical and professional obligation to provide customers with legally correct answers based on my knowledge and experience, even when I know the answer doesn’t make the customer happy...
