Elizabeth Taylor laid to rest

Elizabeth Taylor

The funeral of Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor has taken place in Los Angeles.

Taylor was buried at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park where her late friend Michael Jackson was laid to rest in 2009.

The actress arrived 15 minutes behind schedule for the ceremony after leaving instructions that she wanted to be late for her own funeral.

In keeping with her Jewish faith, Taylor was buried just a day after her death.

Other stars at rest in the same cemetery include fellow Hollywood legend Marilyn Monroe, as well as James Stewart, Clark Gable, Errol Flynn, Humphrey Bogart and Spencer Tracy.

Taylor passed away at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre from congestive heart failure.

Speaking earlier this week, her son Michael Wilding described the actress as "an extraordinary woman who lived life to the fullest".

"We know, quite simply, that the world is a better place for Mum having lived in it," he said.
