Winehouse funeral takes place in London

The family of Amy Winehouse gathered at a north London cemetery on Tuesday to bid farewell to their "angel," three days after the troubled singer was found dead at her home.

Some 100 mourners, including Winehouse's producer Mark Ronson and Kelly Osbourne, attended the traditional Jewish funeral that closed with her father Mitch saying: "Good night my angel, sleep tight; Mummy and Daddy love you ever so much."

The 45-minute ceremony was led by a Rabbi and included prayers in English and Hebrew.

Amy will be cremated following a funeral service in North London ... several U.K. media outlets are reporting.  Amy's family is said to be gathering at a local synagogue later today.

Mark Ronson -- who produced most of her "Back to Black" album -- and Kelly Osbourne arrived to pay their respects.  As a tribute to Amy .... Osbourne showed up to the Edgwarebury Cemetery wearing the singer's signature beehive style hairdo.

Ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil -- who's currently serving 32 months in prison for burglary and possession of an imitation firearm -- was denied release to attend the funeral.

Amy was found dead on Saturday at her home in London -- the cause of death has not been determined.
