This is not the way you want your relatives to end up. An undertaking outfit in Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland, has been accused of mishandling the cremated remains of its clients.
Undertakers have been accused of using human ashes to grit the path outside their funeral home.
It is also claimed staff disposed of ashes which were later to be claimed by a bereaved family by accident.
One worker said that, when the family arrived, their urn was filled with ashes which had lain unclaimed in the office for 50 years. [Link]
