The mortal remains of singer Amy Winehouse will be laid to rest today (July 26). Representative of the singer told US Weekly that the funeral will take place today. The announcement came hours after a London coroner stated that an inquest into the singer's death has been opened and adjourned to October 26.

The funeral service of the singer, who died at her London home on July 23, was expected to take place early, as the Jewish law says that the mortal remains of the deceased be buried within a day. So, soon after the coroner said that an inquest into the her death had been opened and adjourned, the representative of the singer announced her funeral date.

The 27-year-old's body was identified by her parents so that they could start preparing for the funeral. An autopsy was conducted on the singer but it failed to give the cause of her death. It may take another four weeks to know the exact cause of her death, as toxicology tests take time.
