Fans hoping to see the final resting place of singing legend George Michael will be disappointed – after the cemetery where he was buried has banned fans from visiting.

He was buried in Highgate cemetery in north London, near his mother Lesley.

But fans hoping to pay their respects to the Careless Whisper singer will be upset – after the cemetery banned tours from vising the grave.

According to The Mirror, George has been buried in a private section on the site behind a brick wall and bushes, not accessible on guided tours offered at Highgate.

The website, which has been updated recently, now reads: ‘George Michael’s grave is not visited on the tour.’

Tourists are able to pay £12 for the 70-minute tour, which includes visits to the graves of Patrick Caulfield and Christina Rossetti.

But it’s thought George’s family didn’t want his final resting place to become a tourist site.

In a statement released by his family confirming the funeral had taken place, his family said: ‘We can confirm that the funeral of the singer George Michael took place today. Family and close friends gathered for the small, private ceremony to say goodbye to their beloved Son, Brother and Friend.

‘George Michael’s family would like to thank his fans across the world for their many messages of love and support. We ask that the family’s wish for privacy be respected so that they can continue to live their lives privately, away from any media intrusion.

‘No further details will be released.’
