Re: Researching cremations #general

I found a double headstone for my great grand father's wife, who died in the 1930's, in Oakland California, but he was missing.  I found out through research that he died in the 1980's.  I ordered his death certificate and found the cemetery that handled his remains and called them to find out where he remains.  They told me he is in their cremation storage area.  Apparently he made the final resting place decision himself.  But I wondered why he did not just use the burial plot next to his wife.  Someone suggested to me that there might not have been anyone to mourn him in California, since his remaining family were on the East Coast.
