British actor Pete Postlethwaite was laid to rest in a small family funeral service conducted by his cousin on Saturday (15Jan11).
The Oscar-nominated star passed away at a hospital in Shropshire, England earlier this month (02Jan11) after a lengthy illness, prompting tributes from his acting peers, including Kevin Spacey and Julie Walters.
Postlethwaite, who shied away from media attention when off-screen, was buried near his home in Shropshire on Saturday.
The service was overseen by his cousin, Father Nick Postlethwaite, who reveals the family wanted a private farewell.
He tells Britain's Daily Express, "Pete was a very private man and his funeral reflected that. There will be other opportunities for the wider community to pay tribute to him."
A memorial service for the star will take place in London on 16 February (11).
