Elvis Presley’s tragic grandson Benjamin Keough was laid to rest next to the King at his Graceland estate in Memphis, Tennessee after taking his life in July

Benjamin Keough was buried alongside his grandfather Elvis Presley in Graceland after committing suicide during the summer

Lisa Marie Presley’s son died in July aged 27 and a coroner confirmed his cause of death was suicide

He has now been laid to rest at the King’s Estate in Memphis, Tennessee, alongside his grandfather and other family members

The statement read: « Benjamin Storm Presley Keough was laid to rest in the Graceland Meditation Garden with his family including his grandfather, Elvis Presley, his great-grandmother Gladys Presley, his great-great-grandmother father, Vernon Presley and his great-great-grandmother , Minnie Mae Presley « 

Benjamin’s death rocked the family this year, and after the tragedy his model / actress sister Riley shared a heartbreaking tribute to his brother online

She wrote: « Mornings are the hardest I forget you’re gone I can’t cry because of the fear of never stopping A pain that’s new to me

« You There are no words for you Angel is the closest I can think of Pure light Little brother Best friend

« Wild man Intellectual Witness of my life Soulmate Protector Too sensitive for this harsh world

« I hope you give me the strength to endure the giant hole you left in my heart I hope you give me the strength to eat

« I hope you are cradled in love I hope you feel my love I hope you feel god You are God I can’t believe you left me

« Not you sweet Ben Ben Anyone but you I guess it’s a real heartache Hope we meet again »

Elvis was buried in Forest Hill Cemetery after his death in 1977, but his remains were transferred to Graceland later after three men attempted to steal his body

The king was transferred to the grounds of his former home, along with his mother’s remains, where they were buried in the estate’s meditation garden

The family originally wanted him to be buried in Graceland, but had to opt for a cemetery as they did not have the necessary permits

However, after the burglary plot, Memphis officials allowed the king to be buried in his old home
