A plaque dedicated to Queen frontman Freddie Mercury has been stolen from a London cemetery.

The plaque was unknown to most Queen fans until earlier this year, when it was speculated that the cemetery in Kensal Green could be the final resting place of Freddie Mercury. The Mirror now reports that the plaque, which featured the birth and death dates of Mercury, has gone missing. A Queen fan quoted by the paper said: “It’s just disappeared into complete thin air. No sooner had the mystery of Freddie’s ashes seemingly been solved than this adds a whole new chapter. It’s all very odd but just adds to the intrigue of where they ended up.”

Mercury was cremated after he died in 1991 with nobody knowing precisely where the ashes were scattered. However, the plaque was thought to 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 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. 

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.
