I have a question-- Can a person initiate temple work for deceased direct line grandparents if there are living children of grandparents?
@Gayle Wilson Viera
The answer to your question depends on when your grandparents were born. If your grandparents were born before 1911, you can initiate temple ordinances for them.
If not, there is an article in the Help Center titled: How do I request ordinances for an ancestor who was born in the last 110 years.
Here is a paragraph from that article: "When you reserve ordinances for your ancestors, you can come across a warning that reads, "Permission Required." The message means that the ancestor was born within the last 110 years. You must receive permission from a close living relative before you can reserve the name for temple work. Verbal permission is acceptable. The close living relative can be an undivorced spouse, an adult child, a parent, or a sibling.
You can find this article in the Help Center by typing the search terms, 110 year rule. It should be the 3rd link. You will find more instructions and information in the article.
We hope this information helps. Best Wishes.
