Amy Winehouse laid to rest

No Comments
Three days after her death, Amy Winehouse's funeral took place in London today at Edgwarebury Cemetery.

The private service drew about 200 attendees, including Marc Ronson (who produced Winehouse'sBlack to Black and recently called Winehouse his "musical soulmate") and longtime Winehouse friend Kelly Osbourne. Also present: Reg Traviss, Winehouse's most recent ex-boyfriend. Blake Fielder-Civil, Winehouse's ex-husband, requested a leave from jail to attend the service (he is serving a 32-month sentence for burglary and weapon transgressions) but was denied.

The service reportedly lasted about 45 minutes and, according to the AP, was to be followed by "cremation and a family gathering at a local synagogue".

Many of the female guests -- including Osbourne -- wore their hair in Winehouse's trademark beehive.

Amy's father Mitch delivered the eulogy, which he closed with the line "Goodnight, my angel. Sleep tight."

The service was conducted as soon as possible after Winehouse's death, in accordance with Jewish law, and was presided over by Rabbi Frank Hellmer.

There is still no official world on what caused Winehouse's death, as Monday's autopsy was inconclusive and results of toxicology reports aren't expected for two to four weeks.
