I have seen this since they started deleting the dead sims off the friends list.  I play each household and have been in household where the sim died.  I would mark the tombstone and eventually move on to another household.  When I come back to the household with the tomb, it is 'blank' and there is no ghost.  I see the same thing with the book of life (Except the title I make is still there).  I am doubting I can ever bring these sims back.  I have not tried yet, it's not 'time'.

i had a sim who basically died in front of me.  he went to relax and then stopped taking commands ect.  his social, food, sleep ect all went red.  then the grim reaper showed up while i was watching.  a urn was never left but his ghost shows up every night then dissappears in a yellow cloud by their bed.  i have moved the bed where he died and also took up the flooring to see if it was underneath.  i am trying to chat with him and become friends and move him onto the lot as a ghost then move him out.  the only way to figure it out.

Sounds like he got bugged before he died. Was he a member of your household ?

 

You can try testingcheats and then just add him to your household with shift click. Faster than befriending.

So there is no mausoleum in the sims 4 so I just ended up making my own graveyard in an empty lot. But anyways...I just figured out a cheat. So you do "testingcheats true" cheat and add the dead body/ghost to a current living family and then you type in "bb.showhiddenobjects" in the cheat bar and buy the urn. When you place the urn in the world you click on the ghost that's now apart of your family and have them click on the urn and click "posses urn." They will then go into the urn and you can place the urn in your inventory. I put the urn in my inventory and brought it to the grave yard I made and placed it there. The urn turned into a tombstone when placed in the grave yard and I just made a little grave with flowers for them and saved the property. Done. Now the home they were in is empty and they're in one place with all the other ghost sims. 👍🏼 Hoped that helped!

Interesting, thanks for posting.

 

I'm marking your post as solution to increase visibility. This is not a bug anyways.

This didn't work for me.
I had an elder sim who died on another lot with no urn or tombstone. His ghost was nowhere to be found so I summoned the ghost using "mc commander" mod. When the ghost came, I added him to the family just as you did, then got an urn from debug. But "posses" lasts like a few seconds and the ghost comes back out, while he is in the urn, I can't put it in my inventory as it's being used (being possesed) I wonder how did you do that ? It doesn't work.
Also as an urn which is bought from the debug isn't tied to the ghost, when ghost clicks on it, there's no "return to netherworld" option.

The real solution:
1-summon the ghost using mc commander.
2-add the ghost to the active family
3-cook ambrosia and have the ghost eat it
4-re-kill the sim
