Since your mother had no will, anything to do with your mother defaults to your father. Your father had the right to choose to have your mother cremated. So even though it was against your mother's wishes, the fact that your mother had no will makes it a moot point. If she had prepared her will and had it notarized, then your father could not have had your mother cremated. You would also have to take your father to court, to become the custodian of your mother's ashes.

the only legal way to get them is a civil law suit, I would talk to a lawyer, most have free consultations.

You can't. He, being the husband, is next of kin. And you can't steal her ashes. That's jail time.
