Who gets the remains of someone who is cremated? Posted on April 20, 2011

My father expired in December 2010. I went to view his body and was told I could only see him for a few moments. I was told no info on the service could be told to me because I wasn't paying for the service. only that he was going to be cremated. I'm the oldest and asked how much was the services. Back in January he was still at the funeral home. I recently called the funeral home and they said Next of kin was given the ashes. I don't who the person is or was. Please help me to understand why I wasn't given the opportunity to receive my daddys remains.
