A final resting place is a sacred space that friends and family members will visit for generations to come not only to grieve but also to honour and remember.
Each time I create a memorial I delight in thinking that it may someday provide valuable information to a genealogist or comfort to a loved one.
Transfers - Please use the "Edit" tab on the memorial, send a "Suggest any other correction" message including your "ID number", I'm more than happy to transfer memorials as per FAG rules which are your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. If your relationship to the deceased is not listed, please consider adding the memorial to one of your virtual cemeteries, and use the edit functions to add additional info to the memorial I created.
If FAMILY MEMBERS wish to have a memorial deleted I will do so, no questions asked.
