Early rumours suggested the Cleopatra legend, who died of congestive heart failure on Wednesday (23Mar11), would be buried next to her mother and father at the Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery.

TMZ.com now claims Taylor's final resting place will be at Forest Lawn in Glendale, California - the same cemetery as her close friend Michael Jackson.

Taylor's spokesperson has declined to comment directly on the differing reports, only telling CNN that all funeral arrangements would remain private.

However, the rep insisted a public memorial service will be planned for a later date.

The movie star's family have also remained mum on funeral plans, although they did request fans looking to send their condolences donate to the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation in lieu of flowers.
