Chester Bennington's family want a private memorial for him.

The Linkin Park frontman died by suicide at his home in Los Angeles earlier this month and while fans wish to remember him with a public service, his loved ones are hoping to keep the memorial to just close friends and family.

A source told TMZ that the family are considering how to give fans the opportunity for a public goodbye at a later stage.

It has also been claimed that Chester's family are reluctant to have him buried next to his close friend Chris Cornell - who took his own life in May - at Hollywood Forever Cemetery because it is too public.

Meanwhile, it has been revealed that authorities investigating 41-year-old Chester's death found no obvious signs of drug abuse.

The star's body was found at his Los Angeles home by his housekeeper and investigators examining the property found no illegal or prescription drugs while searching the building.

It is unclear whether Chester - who had spoken openly in the past about his drug addiction - had any substances in his system at the time of his death as toxicology results are still pending.

It was previously revealed a partially-drunk bottle of alcohol was discovered in the bedroom where the rocker's body was found.

Earlier this week, police released the audio of a 911 call made by Chester's driver, in which the housekeeper - who called the 'Crawling' singer's wife, Talinda, to break the news as she was out of town - could be heard sobbing in the background.

The driver said: ''I'm a driver and I just got to the location and his housekeeper came out and said that he killed himself.

''I haven't seen him. I'm sitting in the car. His housekeeper came up to me and said that he... she found him dead.

''I asked 'Is he cold, is he warm?', and she said 'No, he's dead, he's been hanging', and she's talking to his wife right now....

''It's a home. I'm in Palos Verdes estates. He's mid-forties.''
