Details of the 16th Hillsborough Memorial Service to be held at Anfield on Friday, 15th April 2005.

The 16th anniversary of the disaster in Sheffield that cost 96 fellow fans their lives will take place on Friday, 15th April 2005.
 
As is the custom, the Hillsborough Family Support Group are organising a Memorial Service to mark the occasion and to remember those who died.
 
The service will be inter-denominational and will take place on the Kop at Anfield. It will commence at 2.45pm, include a minute's silence at 3.06pm and concludes at about 3.30pm with the singing of 'You'll Never Walk Alone'. All are welcome to attend the service.
 
Tickets are not required and an open invitation is extended to all to join the families, the Directors, officials and players of LFC plus thousands of fellow football fans in the annual act of rememberance. This year is expected to be exceptionally well attended and the club is asking that you allow adequate time and plan to be in your seats by around 2pm.
 
Phil Hammond, Chairman of the Hillsborough Family Support Group said: "We light a candle to remember each individual life that was extinguished prematurely and we rely upon the eternal flame of the Hillsborough Memorial to burn some light into the darkest night.
 
"For many, Friday, 15th April will be just a 'normal working day' and there will be others who are unable to attend - despite wishing otherwise. We invite them to join us in spirit and spare a thought. Say a private prayer or even light a candle in their minds."
