Elvis Presley's crypt up for auction
Monday 28 May 2012
For the right price, you or a loved one can rest in peace in the tomb of The King.
Celebrity auctioneer Darren Julien is selling Elvis Presley's original crypt to the highest bidder as part of his Music Icons auction later this month.
The tomb is located inside the granite and marble mausoleum at the Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis, Tennessee.
Presley was interred there alongside his mother, Gladys, after he died on August 16 1977. Two months later, they were re-buried at his Graceland home. The original crypt has remained empty ever since.
Julien says the winning bid from the auction beginning on June 23 will receive the crypt, opening and closing of the vault for burial, a memorial inscription and use of a chapel for a committal service. Transportation and funeral home charges are not included.
