My brother died back in 2014. A few months after his death, I went on F.A.G.

to create a memorial for him, which I should have every right to do! My memorial was deleted because this vulture named Ken Nagel had already made a memorial for him and he didn't even know my brother! He's one of the many vultures on that site that are just watching the obituaries for people to drop dead so they can hurry and make a memorial! What is the point in this?

Are they somehow making money off of this? I sure wouldn't doubt it. The families memorials should be first, not those of strangers!

I've been a member of F.A.G. for a very long time now but am thinking of deleting my account because I'm so sick of the jackals!

Your memorial wasn't deleted it was merged with an already existing memorial. Creating 2 memorials for 1 deceased person in no way honors the dead.

All duplicates should be merged but considering how many exist that's probably not possible. Some of you people are a real trip.


You made a duplicate. You violated site policy.

Deal with it.violatesFamily members do not have exclusive rights to create memorials for relatives. Doo you have any idea how many people have found their relatives because a stranger created a memorial for their relative?


If telling them the right procedure to follow makes you get aggravated, then it's just possible that Find A Grave's policy on transferring memorials to family members is not prominently displayed enough. Or they are just not quite as quick on the uptake as yourself.

The question of whether or not a family member gets to manage their relative's memorial is not really at issue, so it's probably more useful to instruct them as to the process for getting that done. All you get from responding like this is angry slow people.


I believe you can politely REQUEST a transfer. However, the memorial creator is not obligated to make the transfer.

I've had a woman contact me to voluntarily transfer a few memorial to me. I didn't Even ask.


Unfortunately, politeness is something that does happen too often there with the hoarders. They become unhinged, devilish and have foaming fits....... Too sad !


In the OP's case, the memorial creator IS obligated to make the transfer because the deceased was the OP's brother, a required transfer. It helps to read and understand the site's policies.


Family members should always come first when it comes to making memorials for their family! If there is already a stranger made memorial and a family member decides they want to add their own, then the stranger made memorial should be removed, end of story.

If F.A.G.

had any compassion, this is the way it would be. You are an idiot!


I completely agree with you!


Creating memorials for YOUR family is not the purpose of the site. Find A Grave users should read and comprehend the site's policies and understand they are "guests".

When you are a GUEST, you abide by your hosts' wishes. That's basic common courtesy.


I've had people leave comments on my Find A Grave page THANKING me for taking the time to create a memorial and photographing the head stone. On lady wrote from England saying that she lost touch with her sister and was happy to see her headstone.

As well, this lady was disabled and unable to visit her sister in person. I have recieved a few more like this one.

Some people care offended, some are delighted. Can't please everyone.


To me that is the point of creating memorials on Findagrave - to help people who don't live near a cemetery and preserve images of decaying stones. Some of these serial complainers seem to have emotional problems and a lot of the user names they post with are very similar.
