Jeffrey Epstein's body has reportedly been laid to rest in an exclusive, leafy memorial chapel in Florida, after his remains were snuck in via mini-van on the Sabbath.

According to reports from The Daily Mail, Epstein, the high-risk, registered sex offender, who took his own life after being jailed on international child sex trafficking charges, has had his remains placed in a crypt next to his deceased parents, reports news.com.au.

The memorial stone remains unmarked, with Epstein's final remaining next of kin, believed to have picked up his body earlier this month telling reporters the gravesite's location was "nobody's f***ing business".

Next to Epstein's unmarked remains are the names of numerous other deceased Jewish people, who have now been laid to rest next to one of contemporary history's most notorious and hated figures.

Epstein, a mysterious financier, whose wealth was believed to be in the billions, cavorted with royalty and powerful politicians, including Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, before numerous FBI investigations led to him retreating into hiding.

According to sources cited by The Daily Mail, a memorial plate, formerly in place at the IJ Morris Star of David Cemetery of the Palm Beaches, in Palm Beach, Florida, was removed and replaced with a blank slab.

When Epstein's brother, Mark Epstein, was contacted to confirm whether his paedophile brother had been entombed at the Jewish crypt, he said, "It's nobody's f***ing business."

"It's a private family matter, you got that?" Mark said. "I'm not going to answer your question."

The IJ Morris at Star of David Cemetery is a large site for burials, cremations and tributes, housing dozens of crypts and community vaults, according to their website.

The Palm Beach Cemetery is a half-hour drive from one of Epstein's many properties, where he is believed to have abused numerous underage victims, according to unsealed court documents.

Epstein owned numerous properties, including his home in Palm Beach, a private island, named "Little Saint James", near Saint Thomas in the US Virgin Islands, the "Zorro" Ranch near Stanley in New Mexico, as well as an apartment in Paris, and one of the largest private residences on the island of Manhattan.

Service Corporation International, who own IJ Morris, said in a statement that they couldn't comment on whether or not Epstein's remains had indeed been sealed in the vault in Palm Beach, as their privacy policies bound them from discussing the matter.

"As part of our commitment to all families, we guard their privacy and do not discuss specific matters with the media," Service Corporation International said in a statement.

Epstein's father, Seymour G. Epstein, was laid to rest in the same cemetery in 1991. Seymour had worked as a groundskeeper for the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, and died at the age of 74.

His mother, a stay-at-home mum, was sealed in the same crypt following her death at the age of 85, five years later, in 2004.

Epstein's body was collected earlier this month by his brother, Mark, according to reporting by The Daily Beast.

Mark is Epstein's only surviving next of kin, and previously had offered up his home, a condo in Florida, as collateral on top of a large bond payment, to get Epstein out on bail following his arrest.

Mark's home is mentioned in court documents, with victim's alleging abuse took place in his condo.

Mark has denied any connection to his brother's businesses.

Epstein signed a will in jail, just two days before he took his own life, putting his more than $852.3 million (US $577 million) in assets into a trust fund. The move is likely to make it more difficult for his dozens of accusers to collect damages from the deceased estate.

Estate lawyers and other experts say prying open the trust and dividing up the financier's riches is not going to be easy, and could take years.

"This is the last act of Epstein's manipulation of the system, even in death," said lawyer Jennifer Freeman, who represents child sex abuse victims.

The discovery of the will with its newly created "1953 Trust", named after the year of Epstein's birth, instantly raised suspicions he did it to hide money from the many women who say he sexually abused them when they were teenagers.

By putting his fortune in a trust, he shrouded from public view the identities of the beneficiaries, whether they be individuals, organisations or other entities.
