Amy Winehouse’s funeral will take place today (26.07.11).
The 27-year-old singer, born on the 14 September 1983 in London, ‘ who was found dead at her north London home on Saturday (23.07.11) ‘ will be laid to rest in a private ceremony for her loved ones, a family spokesperson has confirmed. The representative refused to give details of the time or location for the service. Jewish customs normally require a funeral to take place within 24 hours of death.
However, Amy’s had to be delayed in order for post-mortem examinations to be carried out. Her inquest was opened and immediately adjourned at London’s St Pancras Coroner’s Court yesterday (25.07.11) in order to prevent further delays in the burial. The case has now been adjourned until October 26.
