British soul singer Amy Winehouse’s funeral will be privately held on Tuesday, July 26, 2011, attended by only her family, father Mitch, mother Janis, elder brother Alex, along with her boyfriend Reg Traviss and close friends.

According to Jewish tradition, the funeral takes place as quickly as possible following a death.

The "Back In Black" star might have been dead about six hours before her body was discovered lying in bed but no cause of Amy Winehouse's death has been given.

Yesterday, her parents visited the award-winning artist’s Camden home, where many mourning fans with flowers, candles, vodka bottles, cigarettes, flags, wine glasses, drawings, handwritten cards and Amy’s portraits, gathered in honor of her.

According to Metropolitan Police, an autopsy performed Monday at St. Pancras Mortuary did not establish a formal cause of Amy Winehouse’s death and the results of further toxicology tests could take up to four weeks. Though no drug paraphernalia or signs of usage were found in her home, her friends reportedly said that she lost her life due to drugs overdose.
