Elvis Presley’s burial crypt withdrawn from memorabilia auction

June 24, 2012

The crypt in which Elvis Presley was first buried at Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis, Tennessee has been withdrawn from a Los Angeles auction after protests it should be kept as a shrine.

More than 10,000 fans signed a petition against the sale of the tomb which has remained empty since Elvis’s body was moved to a permanent site in the Graceland Meditation Garden in October 1977.

The cemetery says it now intends to find a plan “that best suits the interests of the fans while respecting and preserving the memory of Elvis”.
