With the confirmation of the remains in the car part as being those of Richard III, there were various proposals as to where he should be buried.

  • Westminster Cathedral was officially ruled out.
  • Leicester Cathedral - on the grounds that it was only a short distance from where he was found.
  • York Cathedral - as he was of the House of York: the Plantagenet Alliance is of this opinion.
  • Middleham - where he grew up
  • A Catholic place of worship.

After a legal challenge it was decided that Leicester Cathedral was the appropriate place for his reburial.
