Friends and family attended the funeral of Amy Winehouse this morning.
The singer, who was found dead on Saturday (July 23) in her house in Camden, London at the age of 27, was mourned at a 45-minute long memorial service at Edgwarebury Cemetery in Edgware.
Among the 300-400 mourners who were reported to have attended, were Kelly Osbourne, a close friend of Winehouse’s and Mark Ronson, who co-produced the singer’s hugely successful second album Back To Black. Ronson had described Winehouse as his “musical soulmate” in a recent tribute to the singer.
Family spokesman Chris Goodman said the funeral is a private service for family and close friends. Winehouse’s father Mitch read a eulogy aloud at the ceremony, which ended, according to BBC News, with the words: “Goodnight, my angel, sleep tight. Mummy and Daddy love you ever so much.”
Winehouse had requested cremation and to have her ashes mixed with her grandmother Cynthia‘s ashes. The singer had a tattoo of her grandmother on her right arm.
An autopsy on Monday failed to determine the cause of the singer’s death. Police are awaiting the results of toxicology tests, which will take two to four weeks. Investigators at the scene of her death said it was “non-suspicious” and that no drugs were found in her home.
