Amy Winehouse funeral ends as friends and family bid farewell

By
Amy Winehouse's body has been cremated at Golders Green Crematorium in North-West London.

The ceremony followed the singer's funeral at nearby Edgwarebury Cemetery and a memorial service at a synagogue in Edgware. Friends including Kelly Osbourne and Mark Ronson attended.

The Golders Green venue was chosen because the funeral of Winehouse's grandmother Cynthia also took place there.

A mourner said of the memorial service: "It was emotional, it was happy and it was sad. It was everything really."

One spectator told People: "It was very moving yet quite very humorous at times. It was a wonderful tribute to Amy."

Between 300 and 400 people travelled to Edgwarebury Cemetery in Edgware, North London for the 45-minute ceremony.

The inquest into Winehouse's death was opened yesterday and immediately adjourned until October 26. No cause of death was given following a post-mortem examination of her body.

Friends and family of Winehouse are now moving to the nearby Southgate Progressive Synagogue for a private gathering, BBC News reports.
