The late legendary scientist Stephen Hawking will be laid to rest in Westminister Abbey, London, near the graves of ground-breaking scientists Sir Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin.

His funeral will take place at Great St Mary's, the University Church in Cambridge, on Easter Saturday, his family announced.

The Abbey is the final resting place of many scientific luminaries, but Hawking will be the first well-known public person for almost 30 years, and the first scientist for 80 years, to receive the honor.

Westminster Abbey, the final resting place of 17 monarchs and of some of the most significant figures in British history, said on Tuesday it would hold a Service of Thanksgiving for Hawking later this year, during which his ashes would be interred. Dr. John Hall said that it is vital for science and religion to work together to answer the questions about the mysteries of life and the universe.

She quoted that the ashes of her father will be entombed in Westminster Abbey in Cambridge, the city which he loved the most.

British physicist Hawking died aged 76 on March 14 after a cosmic career in which his mental genius transcended his physical disability. Hawking's daughter mentioned how her father stayed in Cambridge for over 50 years and became an integral part of the city.

Following Professor Hawking 's death, Cambridge University described the PhD alumnus as "an inspiration to millions".

The service will be traditional and inclusive, and will reflect the breadth and diversity of his life.

The interment will take place after a service of thanksgiving later this year. Nuclear pioneer Sir Ernest Rutherford was also buried there three years earlier.

Although his disease left him paralysed and using a wheelchair for mobility, Hawking said on his website he had tried not to let it affect the way he lived his life. "Charles Darwin was buried beside Isaac Newton in 1882", the Dean of Westminster, the Very Reverend John Hall, said in a statement. Considered by many to be the greatest scientist of his generation, Hawking overcame a debilitating disease to gain a worldwide following for his brilliant work in theoretical physics.
