Winehouse Cremated After Funeral

FAREWELL TO WINEHOUSE: Tragic U.K. pop diva Amy Winehouse was cremated at a small private ceremony today in North London, surrounded by family and close friends, among them producer Mark Ronson, Kelly Osborne, UMG boss Lucian Grainge and wife Caroline. The singer’s body arrived in a private ambulance, while a hundred or so fans gathered outside the ceremony, but most obeyed the family’s requests for privacy, preferring to keep vigil at a makeshift shrine outside the singer’s Camden Square home. Earlier, the family had held a private funeral service at a synagogue. Delivering the eulogy at the religious service, Winehouse’s father Mitch closed with, “Goodnight my angel, sleep tight. Mummy and Daddy love you ever so much.” An inquest into the singer’s death was opened yesterday and adjourned until October 26. Police say that the cause of death cannot be determined until they get the results of toxicology and forensic tests, which could take as long as four weeks. (7/26p)
