Yep, that's how it gets its name. They heat up bones into 'bone ash', then use it with other materials to make bone china.

I'm unable to find evidence to support this. Could you provide links?

From www.madehow.com- (My bold)
Later in the eighteenth century the English further improved upon the recipe for porcelain when they invented bone china by adding ash from cattle bones to clay, feldspar, and quartz. Although bone china is fired at lower temperatures than true porcelain, the bone ash enables it to become translucent nonetheless. Because it is also easier to make, harder to chip, and stronger than hard porcelain, bone china has become the most popular type of porcelain in the United States and Britain (European consumers continue to favor hard porcelain).



Also look for Porcelain on Wikipedia.
Porcelain can have bone ash in it but doesn't neccesarily have to. I don't know how one would find this out though. Maybe the manufacturer.
