How can I get deceased loved one’s fingerprint?

When we lose loved ones, family members or friends, we are left with memories of shared moments and unique objects that will forever remind us of them. Fingerprints are certainly among the most unique features of every human being, so families often take the fingerprints of deceased loved ones, in order to preserve them as an invaluable memory.

For many, the thought of taking the fingerprints of deceased family members is not something they would be comfortable with in moments of deep grief – this is perfectly understandable. In such circumstances you can rely on the help of the funeral director. In most funeral homes, their staff can make fingerprints of your loved one for you, with utmost care for the dignity of the deceased and their family. The job of funeral directors is to provide you with support in difficult times and make it easier for you to say goodbye to your loved one, so they will be happy to do everything they can to help you.

If you have lost a family member or dear friend, consult with the funeral director if you want to preserve your loved one’s fingerprints. Funeral homes have special inks and paper for preparing prints, but you can also make prints with ordinary ink pads, on plain paper. As we said earlier, if you are unsure how to proceed, talk to your funeral director and ask for their assistance.

Maybe you want to take the prints in person, but would you like the funeral director to be with you if you need help or support? Contact them with full confidence to find out what they can do for you.
