About Freddie Mercury Memorial
In 2009, hundreds of Queen fans flooded Feltham to pay tribute to Freddie Mercury at the unveiling of a memorial Hollywood-style star in honour of the great singer. The memorial reads: “Freddie Mercury – Resident of Feltham”, along with dates of birth and passing, 05/09/1946 to 24/11/1991. At the ceremony, bandmate Brian May joined the star’s 87-year-old mother Jer Bulsara in Feltham town centre. Mr May, who grew up in Feltham, spoke about how he and Freddie used to go to Freddie’s house in Gladstone Avenue to listen to Jimi Hendrix records. Freddie lived in Feltham from 1964 to 1968.
In recent years, the Freddie Mercury Memorial Garden has been added to the memorial, which includes a tree that Freddie’s mother planted. The Memorial and Memorial Garden are looked after by Friends of Feltham Green.
