"When submitting names for proxy temple ordinances, members should generally submit only the names of persons to whom they are related" (General Handbook: Serving in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 126.96.36.199).
Before you can request ordinances for an unrelated friend, you must first submit signed permission from a close living relative of your friend.
A close living relative is an undivorced spouse (the spouse to whom the individual was married at the time of death), an adult child, a parent, a brother, or a sister. Please see the General Handbook, 28.1.
Before you start
Make sure that you have signed, written permission from one of your friend's close living relatives. We cannot accept signed, written permission from yourself or your deceased friend, it must be from the closest living relative. Word the written permission this way:
I, (name of person giving permission), give (your name) permission to do temple work in a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints temple, for (name of deceased), who is my (relationship to person giving permission). (Signature of person giving permission)
If your deceased friend has no close living relatives that can provide written permission, then a request cannot be granted.
- Add your deceased friend to Family Tree. For help doing this, please see the related article below, titled: How do I add an unconnected person to Family Tree?
- Note your friend's ID number in Family Tree.
- To request the ordinances, contact FamilySearch. Be prepared to provide this information:
- The Family Tree ID of the person for whom you want to do ordinance work.
- The full name of the person for who you want to do ordinance work.
- The name of the person who gave permission and that person's relationship to the deceased.
