Davy Jones
' body will be cremated ... family sources tell TMZ.

We're told there will be a memorial service for the singer in Florida, though the date is TBA.

TMZ broke the story ... Davy died last week from an apparent heart attack, which the singer suffered at a ranch near his Florida home, where he was visiting his horses.

Davy has not been cremated yet, and the family is still discussing what to do with his ashes. Funeral plans for the singer are also still up in the air.

If we recall correctly, Davy wrote in his autobiography that he was thinking about being buried in Manchester, England - he actually laid down on his father's grave, testing it out! So cremation is not surprising, to allow transportation of his remains to England, if that's the family's plan. Florida seems a strange place for him to be buried to us fans, because he really lived in Pennsylvania, but called England home. RIP Davy. And we hear that the other 3 Monkees won't be attending the Florida funeral to avoid a media circus - classy, that.

suspect he has already been cremated -- or sure hope so. sounds like there might be a little issue as to where those will be spread or buried. how 'bout some in england, some in pa. and a wee bit in florida. sounds like his real home was in horse country in pa. did he move to fla. after he started seeing the 3rd wife?

I just hope when the rest of the Monkees die that they all get buried at the same place. We can call it: "DEADHQUARTERS"!

Davy Jones was actually at a Thoroughbred racehorse training center called Payson Park. He was a huge racing fan.

Since he loved horses so much, why not spread them throughout the ranch?
