Amy Winehouse's ashes buried

AMY WINEHOUSE's family and friends gathered on Sunday (16Sep12) to bid a final farewell to the tragic star, two days after what would have been her 29th birthday.

Winehouse's father Mitch paid tribute to the singer's "short but dynamic" life in a Jewish ceremony where her headstone was unveiled.

The black gravestone, featuring pink writing and an engraving of a songbird, also pays tribute to Winehouse's paternal grandmother Cynthia.

Around 70 mourners gathered in Edgware, North London as her ashes were buried next to the memorial.

Mitch took to Twitter.com to tell followers about the service, writing, "Today we consecrated the memorial stone for Amy and my mother. It was an emotional and joyous day."
