Amy Winehouse's ashes laid to rest

Monday September 17, 2012

Amy Winehouse's loved ones have laid the singer's ashes to rest at a family ceremony. 

A headstone - inscribed with pink writing and a songbird - was also unveiled at the event. 

Seventy of the Back to Black singer's close friends and family gathered for the memorial service, at which her father Mitch paid tribute to his daughter's "short but dynamic life".

Her ashes were laid to rest alongside her grandmother, Cynthia Levy.

The day of the farewell marked what would have been Amy's 29th birthday.

However, the singer's legacy still lives on.

The Winehouse family have established a foundation in the singer's name, which has been set up to provide support for those who are in need to due to ill health, disability, financial disadvantage or addiction.

The fund has raised £230,000 in total.

A message from the family was also posted onto the star's website, which said: "Whilst the world continues to mourn the loss of a true superstar, her family - first and foremost - remember the daughter, niece and sister that is no longer with them."
