Ashes
When Manjula lost her husband she had to travel all the way to India to scatter his ashes on the river Ganges.

She's glad now that Hindus who want to perform the last rites for their loves ones can go to a special stretch of the river soar in Leicestershire to say goodbye.

In fact, the service is so popular now that people are coming from abroad to use it.
