The troubles singer was found dead on Saturday, July 23rd in her house in Camden, London. She was just 27 but had a long history of drug and alcohol abuse. While the autopsy reports were inconclusive on how the singer died, her family laid her to rest at a 45-minute long memorial service at Edgwarebury Cemetery in Edgware.

A longtime friend of the singer, Kelly Osbourne, and Mark Ronson, who co-produced the Winehouse’s Grammy winning album, Back To Black, were among the mourners.

A family spokesman, Chris Goodman, said the funeral was a private service for family and close friends, where Winehouse’s father Mitch read a eulogy aloud. It ended with: “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.

Now, police are awaiting the results of toxicology tests, which will take two to four weeks. Hopefully that will conclude just what happened.
