Death Date

Like many stars, Freddie Mercury was gone too soon. He died on November 24, 1991, from AIDs-related bronchial pneumonia at the age of 45. While he doesn’t have an official resting place, it is believed that he is at the Kensal Green Cemetery in London.

There wasn’t an official investigation into his death, since just 24 hours before dying he announced to the world that he had AIDs. He urged everyone to help join the fight to end it.

The media, of course, was shocked by this and so were his many fans. He’d kept it a secret and the news still shocks people today as the new movie surround him came out only a few weeks ago.

Freddie Mercury was cremated after a small ceremony and his burial site was hidden away. This didn’t stop the world from mourning and celebrating his life. Less than a year after his death was perhaps the largest farewell concert given ever, tributed to Freddie Mercury.
