Amy Winehouse's Funeral Held in London
Among those in attendance are close friend Kelly Osbourne, love interest Reg Traviss, producer Mark Ronson and fellow band members.
Amy Winehouse’s funeral was held Tuesday at Edgwarebury Cemetery in North London. After, she was expected to be cremated.
Among those in attendance in addition to her family were close friend Kelly Osbourne, love interest Reg Traviss, producer Mark Ronson and fellow band members.
Earlier, her rep, Chris Goodman, said the service would not be open to fans.
An autopsy performed Monday did not reveal the cause of Winehouse's death. An inquest has been opened and adjourned until Oct. 26. Police have said that toxicology and forensic tests taken to establish the cause of the singer's death could take between two and four weeks to be processed.
Sharon Duff, a coroner at St. Pancras Coroner's Court in North London, said Monday that a "Section 20" postmortem had been carried out on the body of the 27-year old singer, who died Saturday, but Duff did not disclose any of its findings.
A Section 20 postmortem implies that the coroner believes "there is reasonable cause to suspect that a person has died a violent or unnatural death or in any other way which would require an inquest." It suggests that the authorities are mounting a more lengthy and serious investigation into the circumstances around Winehouse's death, although the coroner also reported that at the scene had been investigated by police and "determined non-suspicious."
Her father Mitch visited with fans outside her London home on Tuesday.
"I know a lot of you, we've been together for five or six years and I know you've got a job to do. I'm glad you're all here anyway," he said. "And as to you people in the street, I can't tell you what this means to us. It really is making this a lot easier. We're devastated and I am speechless. Amy was about one thing and that was love. He whole life was devoted to her family and friends and to you guys as well," he said.
