Are All the Body's Ashes Returned After Cremation?

  When the body is cremated, is it possible to get the entire body's ashes or do they only give you a portion of the body's ashes?

All cremated remains should always be returned except for a small amount that
adheres to the inside of the retort and cannot be recovered. The retort is
wiped out between cremations and in some operations the retort is vacuumed.
If the remains do not fit in one container then a second, or even a third
must be used. -- Jack Springer
