“The ashes of Professor Stephen Hawking will be interred at Westminster Abbey in London, near the remains of fellow scientists Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin.
- Professor Hawking will be buried near fellow fellow distinguished scientists
- Family will hold private funeral at Cambridge University at the end of March
- A public service will be held Westminster later in the year
- A private funeral service for the physicist will be held at the end of the month, before a service at Westminster later in the year.
The Dean of Westminster, John Hall, said it was “entirely fitting” Professor Hawking be buried near his fellow distinguished scientists.
“Sir Isaac Newton was buried in the Abbey in 1727. Charles Darwin was buried beside Isaac Newton in 1882,” Mr Hall said.”
Bear thinks this is totally right!
