I am sorry for your loss. You really need to set up an appointment for a consultation with a lawyer to explore everything, and what you can do.
I do not think you have a case for not informing you for up to 24 hours but the facts and details matter. You may also have a claim against whoever ordered his body to be cremated. But right now no attorney can give you a meaningful opinion with so few facts.
Please DO NOT message or phone me with further questions or comments as the discussions would be outside this forum and would not be visible to the public (the only exception to this being for serious prospective clients). If you have additional follow up questions or additional facts to add, re-draft them into a new question and repost it. My responses on this website DO NOT constitute a consultation, nor do they establish an attorney-client relationship. Only a written retention agreement signed by client and myself will establish an attorney-client relationship.
