Los Angeles County will soon bury the cremated remains of more than 1400 individuals left unclaimed.

Why do so many bodies go unclaimed There is no specific reason. Some people die alone in nursing homes and hospitals. Some were homeless. Others were babies who died at birth.

The babies’ ashes are stored in small paper bags, neatly folded like wallets, and placed in metal drawers. The adult’s ashes are stored in brown plastic boxes, which don’t quite fit into five tall cabinets at the county crematorium.

A couple of days before the ceremony their ashes will be placed in a single mass grave. 2013 the year they were cremated will mark the plot.
