Memorial contributions to Find A Grave must fulfill that mission - registration of the final disposition. If the memorial contribution corresponds with only the main mission, then the memorial fulfills its purpose as part of Find A Grave's mission.

(A burial unknown does not fill this mission)

What is a cenotaph? How do I have a memorial designated as a cenotaph?

Find A Grave has general rule. If we all followed them there would not be so many burial unknown. Read the FAQ's. (Help with find a grave) to the left.
They have rules for photos, only add photos you took. So Things you take from other web sites do not belong.

Please do not add photos of birth, death records, newspaper obituary's or articles or other stuff like that to memorials I have added. They do not belong on here. Find a grave will remove them if asked. I think they are tacky and make the memorial look bad. And if you read the FAQ's you are not to add them. The place to add them is
What kind of photos may be added to a memorial page?
You may add a grave photo of the headstone or a portrait photo containing the memorialized. Do not add photos of the cemetery gate to the memorial but instead add them to the cemetery's page. If a cemetery photo has been designated by admin to serve as the default photo to appear on individual memorial pages in that cemetery, it will appear automatically. Not all cemeteries have a default photo designated. There is a limit of 5 photos for non-famous memorials that have not been sponsored. Sponsored memorials may have up to 20 photos. Any contributor can upload an appropriate photo to any memorial regardless of who manages the page. No permission from the memorial manager is needed. However, if there is already a photo of the headstone, do not add a second similar photo unless the original is of poor quality and the new photo is dramatically better. This leaves room for photos of the deceased within the five-photo limit on unsponsored memorials. Please note that it is not appropriate to delete a page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created just because you don't like a photo that someone else has added. If the photo is an appropriate addition to the memorial, it will be allowed to remain.

Do not post photos of recently chalked or shaving-creamed headstones.

In the FAQ's You will find sites rules/guidelines.

I do not link Burial Unknown. For Body lost or destroyed I will only link if you have a source that they are lost and not just because you do not know where they are.

Transfer requests will be for direct relatives within four generations. ONLY YOUR
( siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren )

Just because someone is in you family tree is not grounds for a management transfer.
