Police Find Abandoned Cremated Remains on Rochester Street

I was recently interviewed on a local TV station about a plastic bag full of cremated remains that were found abandoned on a street corner in Rochester, NH.  While this story seems strange, you would be surprised to learn how many phone calls we receive about people finding cremated remains in various places.  Recently we received a call from a couple who found an urn in a closet in an apartment they moved into in Manchester, NH.  While abandoning cremated remains is very sorrowful, the good news is that it generally is quite easy to find out the identity of the remains if the crematory provided proper documentation.  And, in most cases, the cremated remains are able to be reunited with their family – many of which are unaware that the remains were even left behind or lost.  Click on the link at http://www.wmur.com/news/18900205/detail.html to learn more about this case and my interview.
