"Cremated son" turns up alive
LONDON (Reuters) - A mother cremated a body she thought was that of her dead son, only for him to turn up alive later, police said on Friday.

Gina Partington's 37-year-old son Thomas Dennison was reported missing last month and a body was found in Rusholme, Manchester, three days later.

The 58-year-old mother, from Urmston, Greater Manchester, formally identified the body as that of her son and, following an inquest, the body was cremated on October 30.

Wowzer! A little more communication could have prevented a great error. Does English law allow legal remedies for any of the families involved? Here in the USA even the ashes would have a lawyer after this kind of mistake.
