THE Kray twins ruled the London underworld from 1957 until they were jailed for murder in 1969.

We take a look at where the infamous gangsters were buried.

The Kray Twins are buried in Chingford Mount Cemetery in the London Borough of Waltham.

Ronnie was buried without his brain after police pathologists secretly removed it, Reggie testified.

Stephen Gold, a solicitor for the Kray Twins at the time, looked into the issue as to why the pathologist decided to remove the brain when it was already confirmed that Ronnie had died of a heart attack.

He found that the brain had been sent from Wexham Park Hospital to a neuropathologist at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford and then sent back to Wexham Park Hospital.

Mr Gold also tried several attempts to learn more about the testing on Ronnie’s brain samples but he was denied by the Information Commissioner.

The brain of Ronnie was eventually buried at a second funeral, their elder brother Charlie testified.

Are the Kray Twins buried together?

Ronnie and Reggie are buried with their older brother Charlie Kray.

Their parents Gary Kray and Violet Annie Lee are also buried in a family plot alongside the infamous gangsters.

The first wife to Reggie, Frances Shea is buried in the same plot.

Shea sadly died aged 23, on June 7, 1967, from taking her own life.

It is believed that Frances' death led Reggie to excessive drinking and his downfall, before him murdering Jack McVitie four months later.

Before going to prison, it is believed that Reggie visited her grave, sometimes more than once a day.

Can you visit their grave?

Yes, you can visit Krays Corner at Chingford mount cemetery – Chingford Mount Cemetery in North East London.

Once you enter the cemetery you need to head up to the top left-hand corner of the cemetery where they are buried.

The cemetery covers 41.5 acres and is planted with mature trees.

The cemetery was opened in 1884 on the site of the house and grounds of Caroline Mount.

It was taken over by the London Borough of Waltham Forest in 1977 and the lodge was subsequently replaced with a less inspiring structure.

When did the Kray Twins die?

Ronnie remained in Broadmoor Hospital until his death on March 17, 1995, after suffering from a heart attack at the age of 61.

Reggie was allowed to attend the funeral out of prison in handcuffs.

Reggie was released from prison on compassionate grounds in August 2000, eight and a half weeks before his death from cancer.

Their reputation preceded them even in death, with onlookers crowding the streets to catch a glimpse of the famed gangster's coffin as it was taken through the East End.

Oleksandr Usyk arrives in London to watch Tyson Fury’s trilogy clash with Derek Chisora as he targets undisputed fight

In attendance at Tottenham's stadium will be WBA, IBF and WBO unified champion Usyk to get an up close and personal look.

His management company posted a video of the unbeaten star walking around North London - a place he knows all too well.

And it comes after his promoter Alexander Krassyuk revealed a deal is in place for the heavyweight division's first four-belt unification.

Krassyuk said: “There is only one thing pending and that is Tyson’s fight. Everything else is in place and we are ready to go.

“It is very likely it is going to be Saudi but, if not, we have many options to market this fight.

"It is the biggest heavyweight fight of all time, probably, so it is not going to be very complicated to place it somewhere on the planet.”

Usyk, 35, most recently beat Anthony Joshua, 33, in their Riyadh rematch in August.

And he will return to the scene of his first victory over AJ in hope that Fury, 34, can do the treble over old friend Chisora, 38.

Usyk was offered the heavyweight division's first four-belt undisputed bout for the end of the year.

But having returned to war-torn Ukraine for the first time after victory over AJ, he decided to rest and recover with his loved ones.

It led to Fury offering Chisora a shock crack at his world title and a third attempt to break his unbeaten record.

But an expected win for the Gypsy King all-but confirms a massive title unification with fellow undefeated star Usyk in 2023.
