Family gathers at Amy’s grave – marked with a songbird
Amy Winehouse’s family said their final farewell to the singer when they buried her ashes in a graveyard in Edgware on Sunday.
The singer, who died from alcohol poisoning at her home in Camden Square, Camden Town, on July 23 last year would have celebrated her 29th birthday last Friday if she had still been alive.
She had battled drink and drug addiction for several years.
The family unveiled a new black headstone featuring pink writing and a picture of a songbird, according to The Sun.
About 70 members of her friends and family attended the Jewish ceremony, the paper said.
The family also held a Jewish ceremony in her former home to mark the first anniversary of her death. Hundreds of mourners left tributes outside her home.
There are ongoing plans to build a permanent memorial statue outside the Roundhouse in Chalk Farm.
