According to the Resource Center, the Westminster Abbey, where 17 monarchs and some of the most important personalities of British history are resting, announced that later this year, a Thanksgiving Divine Liturgy will be held during which Hawking's ash will be buried. Nuclear pioneer Sir Ernest Rutherford was also buried there three years earlier.
The interment will take place after a service of thanksgiving later this year.
The world-renowned physicist and cosmologist died on March 14 at age 76. A private funeral service will be held at Great St Mary's, the University of Cambridge Church on March 31, Prof Hawking's family said.

"Our father lived and worked in Cambridge for over 50 years".
His children Lucy, Robert and Tim said: "On behalf of our whole family we want to express our huge gratitude to all the wonderful tributes to our father and to those who have sent us messages of condolence". 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.
"He was an integral and highly recognisable part of the university and city, for this reason we have chose to hold his funeral in the city that he loved so much and which loved him", Professor Hawking's children said.
The service will be traditional and inclusive, and will reflect the breadth and diversity of his life.
The last significant ashes to be buried at the abbey were those of the actor Laurence Olivier in 1989.
