Chester Bennington has been laid to rest in a private funeral.
The Linkin Park frontman's funeral took place at South Coast Botanic Gardens - near his home in Palos Verdes, Los Angeles, where he died by suicide earlier this month - on Saturday (29.07.17) with just a few hundred people in attendance, TMZ reports.
Chester's family wanted a private memorial for the 41-year-old star and the service was attended by family members, friends, bandmates and musicians he had worked with over the years.
Mourners at the invitation-only memorial were given wristbands and an access pass.
Although fans could not attend the Palos Verdes funeral, Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda recently shared details of worldwide memorials for his late bandmate.
In his Instagram post - which offered fans an update in the week since Chester's passing - Mike also thanked their followers on behalf of his band mates Brad Delson, Dave Farrell, Joe Hahn and Rob Bourdon for their support during the difficult time.
Mike wrote: ''One week. Feels like forever. I'm here for a couple updates. I know these links aren't clickable. Just type them out in your browser; they're easy to remember.
''1.) If you need a (local) place to celebrate Chester, look to tiny.cc/lpmemorial and all the amazing fan sites I've previously mentioned.
