Although the service is private, a throng of media can be seen camped outside the cemetery.

Winehouse ,27, will be cremated, The Sun reported, adding that some of the singer’s ashes will be scattered with those of her beloved grandmother Cynthia, who died of lung cancer five years ago.

The 5-time Grammy winning artist is said to have idolized her grandmother, and even had her name tattooed on her arm.

Officials conducted Winehouse's autopsy on Monday, but the cause of death was inconclusive;  toxicology results won’t be back until 2-to-4 weeks to help pinpoint what killed the talented singer at such a young age.

At this time, police say any speculation about a drug overdose is "inappropriate" in light of the fact there were no drugs were found at Winehouse's London home  upon inspection.

Other notable people whose ashes were scattered at Golders Green include Dracula writer Bram Stoker and psychology icon Sigmund Freud.
