How do you memorialize a Facebook account if someone dies?
WARNING: IF YOU WISH TO RETRIEVE THE PHOTOS IN THE ACCOUNT, YOU MUST FIRST DO THAT BEFORE DELETING OR MEMORIALIZING IT.
CLICK "RETRIEVE FILES AND PHOTOS" AT TOP OF THIS SCREEN, FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THIS SERVICE.
The easiest way is through is through Digital Legacy Services.
Request Facebook account closure or memorialization for the Deceased.
For Facebook, it is possible to memorialize an account, thereby making other Facebook users aware of your Deceased's passing if they visit their profile. Facebook will mark their memorial page with "Remembering". Depending on the Deceased's privacy settings etc. others may be able to submit their comments, memories etc. to a memorialized page.
Please choose from the drop-down if you wish to have the account closed or memorialized for a period of memorialization time (before we process it's closing).
