I have an ancestor whose burial record is at Karrakatta Cemetery. The www.mcb.wa.gov.au site with a 1949 date of death reads 'Ashes Request - dispersed at Karrakatta Cemetery'. Can someone tell me the meaning of 'dispersed' in this context? Scattered, buried?
Would it be a waste of time trying to sort out if he had a tombstone with other info on it?

Thanks,
Sue
