I believe you are correct, and that there is a private memorial service planned for Friday.
A few people on the Screaming Tress fan group that were friends with Mark have mentioned that they are attending and Charles Peterson added on Twitter that he would be supplying some of his photography for the service in LA, although wouldn't be attending himself.
Hopefully it will be a help to his family and friends with the awful grieving process they must be going through.

Mishka wrong on IG April 15th:
mishkashubaly Blues funeral. Laid a king to rest today. A king, a hero, a mentor, a friend, a brother. I didn’t know where to sit at the service and then Slash sat next to me so I guess I picked the right spot. Felt good when Homme talked about what a dick he could be & we both laughed at the same time. It’s a great comfort to cry with some of your childhood heroes. Also nice hearing the word “motherfucker” so many times in a church.
Everybody loves you, you devil in paradise, you are going to live forever 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤
In the book Josh Homme calls you ‘Scratch’. How did you come to be called Old Scratch then? Mark Lanegan: Ah yeah, I think it's an old timer expression they used to use for the devil. It's been a nickname of mine since I was a kid.
