Stephen Hawking Interment Westminster AbbeyPamela Dragone2018-06-18T11:33:17+00:00
On Friday 15th June 2018 the ashes of Professor Stephen Hawking were interred during a Service of Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey. His ashes were laid to rest near Sir Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin.
One thousand guests invited by the Hawking family were joined by more than a thousand members of the public, selected by a public ballot.
The official hashtag for the service is:
Stephen Hawking’s Interment at Westminster Abbey
It was a wonderful day. The sun shone as guests streamed into Westminster Abbey in the heart of London. The service was a most beautiful occasion, with moving tributes from Professor Hawking’s family and friends. We will update this site with photos and film from the day as it becomes available, so please keep checking back to find out more.
You can visit Westminster Abbey to see where the Professor’s ashes are interred. Find out more here: www.westminster-abbey.org/
