A friend of mine works disaster areas post disaster recovering and identifying bodies. She worked in New Orleans after Katrina-Rita. Coffins washed away from cemeteries and bodies had to be identified then put back in the proper place in the proper cemetery. Along with coffins, there were urns for cremains. What was nice about the urns is, they were waterproof so the cremains inside stayed inside. Even better, the name of the decedent was engraved on the outside of the urn - made putting the urn back where it belonged a whole lot easier. 

If you’re going to make an urn for cremains, talk to the family about putting the decedent’s name, birth and death dates - and any other identifying information - on the urn.
