Elvis Presley’s crypt to go up for auction

Elvis Presley's crypt

Elvis Presley’s original crypt is going up for auction, Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills announced Monday.

The “King of Rock and Roll” was laid to rest in the crypt at the Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis, Tenn., after his death in August 1977 at age 42. But his body was moved after two months and reburied at his Graceland estate, and the cemetery crypt has remained vacant.

The tomb that held Presley’s body will be sold as part of Julien’s Auctions “Music Icons” sale June 23-24.

The winning bidder will receive the crypt — which lies within a granite and marble mausoleum — opening and closing of the vault for burial, an inscription to mark the crypt and access to the cemetery’s chapel for a funeral service.
