Freddie Mercury Fans Discover Final Resting Place
After years of searching, Queen fans believe they have finally found the secret resting place of Freddie Mercury. The singer was cremated in 1991, but fans were never told where his ashes had been scattered. Now a plaque in a West London cemetery has been found, dedicated to a Farrokh Bulsara - Mercury's birth name. The plaque in Kensal Rise cemetery reads: "In Loving Memory of Farrokh Bulsara. Pour Etre Toujours Pres De Toi Avec Tout Mon Amour - M." (roughly translated, it reads "Always To Be Close To You With All My Love"). The 'M' on the plaque is assumed to be be Mary Austin, Freddie's former girlfriend who was left the majority of his lucrative song rights. The dates on the plaque also match Freddie's birth and death. "Everyone knows Freddie was cremated at Kensal Green Cemetery in 1991 but it has remained a complete mystery as to where his ashes were finally laid to rest," one fan told the Daily Mirror. "According to some biographies, his ashes werent even collected from Kensal Green for well over a year following his cremation. The discovery of this plaque is really exciting and may prove to be a major breakthrough." In other recent Freddie Mercury news, an unreleased duet with Michael Jackson is expected to appear in a forthcoming documentary about Freddie's life.
