Brady, who died in May aged 79, wanted his remains scattered on Saddleworth Moor, where he and girlfriend Myra Hindley buried four of their five victims.
A judge ruled that would upset families and instead the body was collected from the morgue at Royal Liverpool Hospital at around 9pm on October 25.
It was taken to Southport under police escort for a 10pm cremation and the ashes thrown in the sea near Liverpool Marina at 2.30am.
Mr West, 66, said: “My little sister didn’t get to choose how she was buried, so I can’t see why that evil swine should have any say in what happens to him.”

Terry Kilbride, 63, whose 12-year-old brother was another victim, said: “The urn was made of salt and disintegrated after ten or 15 minutes.
“I was first under the impression he was going to be put in the grounds of a prison but this is the next best thing.”
Brady died at Ashworth High Security Hospital on Merseyside and kept in cold storage during a legal fight over his funeral.
Brady and Hindley, who died aged 60 in 2002, struck in and around Manchester between 1963 and 1965.
