Queen fans are speculating that a cemetery in West London could be the final resting place of Freddie Mercury.

Mercury was cremated after he died in 1991 with nobody knowing precisely where the ashes were scattered. However, a plaque written in French in a London cemetery could offer an insight into where the iconic frontman ended up. The plaque was discovered in Kensal Rise cemetery and is dedicated to a Farrokh Bulsara (Mercury’s birth name). The small plaque is placed alongside tributes to other individuals and features the phrase: 'In Loving Memory of Farrokh Bulsara. Pour Etre Toujours Pres De Toi Avec Tout Mon Amour'. The dates engraved on the plaque match the birth and death dates of Mercury.

The plaque is signed 'M', with fans believing this could be a reference to Mary Austin, Mercury's former girlfriend who inherited his £7m London home following his 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", a fan told the Daily Mirror. "According to some biographies, his ashes weren’t 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."

Freddie Mercury recently hit the headlines when it was revealed that a unreleased duet he recorded with Michael Jackson is to feature in a new documentary about the Queen star's life.
