Freddie Mercury's final resting place may have been discovered.

A plaque seemingly dedicated to the late Queen singer - who died from complications caused by AIDS in 1991, aged 45 - has been found in Kensal Green Cemetery in west London following years of speculation about what happened to his ashes after he was cremated.

The dedication, which is located on a tall plinth along with other memorial plaques, refers to Zanzibar-born Freddie by his birth name, Farrokh Bulsara and matches the dates of his birth and death. The plaque is signed by 'M.', who is thought to be his former lover Mary Austin.

The plaque reads: ''In loving memory of Farrokh Bulsara. 5 Sept. 1946 - 24 Nov. 1991. Pour Etre Toujours Pres De Toi Avec Tout Mon Amour.''

The French words translate to: ''Always to be close to you with all my love.''

What became of Freddie's remains following his death has been a mystery to fans, but it's thought his ashes were given to Mary, who also inherited his £10 million home, Garden Lodge in Kensington, west London.

A Queen fan told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''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.

''The discovery of this plaque is really exciting and may prove to be a major breakthrough.''

Workers at the cemetery had no idea the plaque was in honour of the 'Bohemian Rhapsody' singer, who changed his name after joining Queen in 1971, and it's not known how long it has been there.
