(South Hadley, MA) – The closed Ryder Funeral Home in South Hadley is the subject of another investigation.  Ashes have been exhumed from a grave in Granby after a family questioned whether they belong to their relative.  The funeral service for their family member was held at the Ryder Funeral Home in May, and there are questions about how it was handled.  The Northwestern DA’s office isn’t commenting.  The funeral home’s licenses were suspended at the end of May, and taken away for good this month,  after a state inspection found multiple bodies in various states of decomposition and improperly stored.
