We are honoured to keep the flame burning while Liverpool Football Club constructs its new main stand. The flame will open to view in our Memorial Chapel for the next 18 months.
The club held a short service led by Chaplain Bill Bygroves where they also unveiled a temporary memorial to the 96 so fans can continue to pay their respects.
Liverpool Cathedral, the venue for the disclosure of the Hillsborough Independent Panel report, is happy to be able to offer this service for the club, fans and above all the friends and families of the 96.
Margaret Aspinall, Chair of the Hillsborough Family Support Group, said: “I’d like to thank the Club for involving us from the beginning of the expansion project and taking our views into account for the future of our Hillsborough Memorial.
“We decided to put it into safe storage during the construction period of the Main Stand expansion and also decided on the design of the temporary memorial so fans can continue to pay their respects.
“I’d also like to thank Canon Myles Davies for attending today and agreeing to look after the eternal flame at the Cathedral.”
The eternal flame can be viewed in our Memorial Chapel at all times we are open.
