CREATING A FACEBOOK MEMORIALIf your loved one passes, Facebook accepts requests from "verified immediate family members" to either remove a profile or turn it into a digital memorial. You first must complete a special form at www.facebook.com/help/contact/228813257197480To verify a connection to the deceased person, the request must be accompanied by documentation such as the deceased person's birth/death certificate or proof of your rights as the executor of their estate. These documents can be submitted as a scanned image or a portable document file (PDF).ONCE MEMORIALIZEDOnce an account memorialization request is approved by Facebook, the following limitations will be in effect:• Facebook will not let anyone log into the account.• The account will only appear in searches to users who were verified friends of the deceased prior to memorialization.•
