[Ansys meshing] Multibody part mesh

I really need help with a problem that is probably very easily solved but I cannot get it!
Would really appreciate any help,
I am having some difficulty meshing two bodies as one part.
I started with a solid material block and needed to create a body within this but also want the block to still act like on part. So I did the following:
1. Drew a sketch on the block
2. Used the slice material option
3. Selected both bodies and clicked form new part
But now when I mesh the new part, the meshing is different for each body. How do I combine the meshing? i.e I want uniform meshing?
I think I've tried everything; shared topography, frozen etc. but maybe I did it wrong?
Please any ideas would be much appreciated, I'm sure its something simple I'm missing.
Thanks for any help,
Just to clarify, the reason I would like them meshed together is that even when I refine the meshing of each body, there is not smooth transitions on the stresses.
For example, the following body should have symmetrical stress throughout it; but obviously this is not the case in the image and it is clear where the different "body" is. I would like to merge them as one part with one mesh; but still be able to select that body as I need to perform operations on it later.
Hope that makes sense!
