Have they ever been found, and where are they buried?

Tombs of Prince Ioann Konstantinovich, Grand Duke Sergei Mikhailovich, and Prince Konstantin Konstantinovich in crypt of All Holy Martyrs Church.

Here's the link to where I found it:
http://orthodoxchina.info/saints/alapayevsk_en.htm

if you click on the links at the bottom of the article you will find more information on the tombs. There's also more pictures on the site. Also, if you click on the photo of the tombs on the site you will get a much more detailed imagie of the picture.

All have been found except Misha, and the thread for his body is on this page.

Ashanti01 thanks for the link.Picture of the coffins is quite moving.The other links are interesting too.They make the point that the Konstantinovichi children were not so highly thought of by their Romanov relations.I suppose they're referring to their status within the ranking of the family.Never quite understood that.Konstantine was a Grand Duke,wealthy,accomplished in the army and in the arts.No scandle was attached to that branch of the family.The link also refers to the children as sickly and less attractive than others.Princess Tatiana was beautiful,young Vera certainly looked bonny and grew up-well ,healthy looking anyway.Young Prince Constantine looks darkly handsome in photos.Prince Igor was useful to the Tsar and sounds like Georgie was a bit of a character.This should probably go to the Konstantinovichi thread.Back to the topic-rather sad that the coffins of the Grand Duke and Princes in the picture have not been located and returned to Russia.
