ondon - Amy Winehouse's family said their final farewell on Sunday as they buried her ashes.

The Back to Black singer passed away in July 2011 aged 27 from alcohol poisoning and her ashes were set to rest in a Jewish ceremony in Edgware, North London.

The memorial was attended by around 70 mourners - including Amy's father Mitch - and her ashes were committed to the ground accompanied by a black and pink headstone.

According to The Sun newspaper, the headstone features "pink writing and a picture of a songbird" in memory of the musician.

Mitch, 61, paid tribute to his daughter's "short but dynamic" life.

Last Friday would have been the singer's 29th birthday and her family spoke to fans on the Amy Winehouse Foundation website, saying: "Today marks what would have been the 29th birthday of Amy Winehouse.

"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."
