My friend recently lost her partner and later he was cremated, his mother was still the 'next of kin', therefore she received the ashes.
Then over a week later, the mother in law gave my friend half of the ashes to keep. The ashes look like gravel and not the powder that we expected. Can ashes come out this way, or has the mother in law pretended to give her some ashes and kept the real ones herself. Neither of us have ever seen real human ashes but other people have said there's were powder.
