NORTHVILLE, Mich. (AP) - The cremated remains of more than 50 people have found a final resting place in suburban Detroit.

A special service was held Friday at Rural Hill Cemetery in Northville. L.J. Griffin Funeral Home acquired the remains when it bought another funeral home, the Northrop-Sassaman Chapel. The remains had been unclaimed.

David Griffin says it’s an honor to help those “who have been forgotten.”

The deceased include two infants and many veterans of the U.S. armed services. They died from 1934 through 2006. The ashes of two people were claimed by relatives after a story this week in The Detroit News.

The News (https://bit.ly/1p0OnrO) says a Catholic priest and Presbyterian minister presided at the service.
