Become a moderator to help manage a memorials. Moderators are usually family or friends, but can be anyone who wants to customize the memorial and manage privacy and content settings.

Become a Moderator

There are a few ways to become a moderator:

Create a Memorial

If you create a new memorial, you are automatically a moderator.

Funeral Home or Partner

If a funeral home or other partner creates a memorial for you, they will invite you to become a moderator.

Find a Grave

Memorials created by clicking from Find a Grave do not have a moderator by default. Click “About this Memorial” and follow the instructions to become a moderator.

Make another Guest a Moderator

If you are a moderator and want some help managing the memorial, you can give other guests moderator privileges. Select them from the guestbook and click “+ Moderator.”

Not sure if you are a moderator?

If you see an “About This Memorial” button under the headline, you are not yet a moderator. Or, click on yourself in the guestbook. If there’s an “x Moderator” button, you are a moderator and clicking the button will remove your moderator role.

Memorial Settings Menu

Find the following features in the “Memorial Settings” menu under the name. (Note: you must be a moderator to see this button. If you see “About This Memorial” under the headline, you are not a moderator.)

Related Memorials

Since memorials can only be about one person at a time, we added the ability to link We Remember memorials together. Now you can link spouses and other family members for an easy way to navigate between them!

Approving & Blocking

By default, memorials are set to “All Visitors,” so moderators do not have to approve anything. They are still able to block any guest or memory at any time. This setting is the most convenient for members and moderators, while still allowing moderators complete control..

Approve Memories & Members

In either of the “Approval Required” settings, jooining the memorials or posting content will need to be approved by a moderator. We email all moderators immediately with the request, and members or memories remain hidden until they approve or block the request.

Block Memories & Guests

While any member can report content, only moderators may block and unblock content. Blocked content is hidden to all members but available to moderators, who may unblock content at any time.
