Bobbi Kristina laid to rest next to mother Whitney

Bobbi Kristina Brown has been laid to rest next to her mother Whitney Houston after the pair died in strikingly similar circumstances just three years apart.

The 22-year-old died in a hospice in July six months after she was found unresponsive in a bath tub at her home in Atlanta, Georgia.

Her famous mother Whitney drowned in a bath tub after suffering a heart attack linked to her cocaine use just before the 2012 Grammy Awards.

A funeral for Bobbi was held on Saturday but she was buried next to her mother in the Fairview Cemetery in New Jersey on Monday.

The private ceremony was attended by close family and friends including Bobbi's father Bobby Brown and Whitney's mother Cissy Houston.

The last song to be played was said to have been Whitney's 'Jesus Loves Me'.

Bobbi suffered irreversible brain damage after being found face down in the bath by her husband Nick Gordon.

Gordon had grown up with her after her mother took him in when he was orphaned but they are not biologically related.
