22. My family lived across the street from a cemetery

when I was growing up, and I used to look at the people who went in to see what they were doing. Occasionally I would see someone walk up with a container of ashes and spread them around their family's graves. I went out and looked at the ashes after the people left, and I saw the tiny chips of bone that the fire didn't consume. It seemed like a respectful way to lay a loved one to rest. I don't see why you couldn't put ashes in a compost pile. I don't think it would hurt anything and I doubt anyone would care enough to make a complaint about it.
