Around 40 of the actor’s family members and friends were present during the funeral, according to The Guardian. The ceremony began 15 minutes late. This was to fulfill the actor’s last wish as she wanted to be late for her own funeral said Sally Morrison, Taylor’s spokeswomen.
Actor Colin Farell read poetry and grandchildren Taylor performed “Amazing Graze” on trumpet at the private ceremony.
Taylor, who was married 8 times, converted to Judaism before she married Eddie Fisher in 1959 and Jewish custom requires that the funeral will take place within 48 hours after death. The actress is now buried in a mausoleum in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles, the same place as her good friend Michael Jackson is buried.
