Fourteen months after the singer died of alcohol poisoning in July 2011, her ashes were buried during a Jewish ceremony in north London.
A pink-and-black headstone was revealed to the 70 mourners in attendance. The headstone, ornamented with pink writing and a songbird, also pays tribute to the the "Rehab" singer's grandmother, Cynthia Levy.
The ceremony honored Winehouse's "short, but dynamic life," said her father, Mitch, who coped with the loss by publishing a book on the late singer's life.
The singer would have turned 29 years old on Sept. 14. Her family commented on the Amy Winehouse Foundation website, "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."
