Is it acceptable to add a memorial for someone who is still living?
The site does not encourage adding memorials for individuals who are still living. However, when transcribing a cemetery, it is not always possible to determine if the person is living or not. You are welcome to create a 'pre-need' memorial for yourself provided that you have a pre-need headstone already in place in a cemetery. Memorials for individuals who are alive will be removed when proof is provided (the exception being for 'famous' individuals who already have a burial location in place).
