Wow, Tima. Great find! I bookmarked it.

Edmund Spenser is buried in 'Poets' Corner', Westminster Abbey, London. (See map...ref. no 17)
It is reported that his funeral was attended by Jonson, Beaumont, Fletcher and Shakespeare. Apparently they all wrote elegies for Spenser which they threw into the grave along with their pens.
The exact location of his grave is not known but in 1938 the nearest grave to his memorial was opened in the hope of finding the pens and elegies, but unfortunately all that was discovered was a collapsed lead coffin surrounded by dry soil.
