Public memorial service to honour Fisher and Reynolds

Stars and fans will gather Saturday for a public memorial to honour late actresses Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher.

The ceremony honouring the lives of the mother-daughter duo will be held at the Hollywood Hills cemetery that is their final resting place.

People will be granted attendance at the event on a first-come, first-served basis and it will also be live-streamed on www.debbiereynolds.com beginning at 1 p.m. Pacific.

The ceremony is expected to feature music by James Blunt and ``Star Wars'' composer John Williams.

Fisher and Reynolds died one day apart in late December.

Fisher died several days after falling ill on an international flight, and Reynolds died of a stroke.

Stars including Meryl Streep, Tracey Ullman and Stephen Fry mourned the actresses at a private memorial in January.
