Guess I watched this in the late 90s. Remember only a few things -
There is a girl in a huge old fashioned house. She found a book which had a nicely crafted cover. The cover had a heart shaped piece attached to it. That actually was a key to a secret room. The girl found this out and opened the room where she saw the skeletal remains of an old man. The girl (and her friends?) cremated the remains and freed the old man's soul.
A crow is seen in most of the scenes which flies away in the end.
