“During this 25th anniversary service we will turn on a light for each and every life that was extinguished prematurely and the eternal flame of the Hillsborough Memorial will continue to light our way through the darkest days.

“We expect the service to be busy, so we urge you to obtain your ticket as early as possible and only request the amount of tickets you need. We have also put a closing date of Monday, March 31, so we can plan accordingly.

“For many, April 15 may be a working day and there will be those who are unable to attend. We invite you to join us in thought and spirit and keep us in your prayers at this difficult time.

Who we are

We are the original Hillsborough group, representing 74 of the families, and would like to thank Liverpool Football Club for all their support over the years.

The Hillsborough Family Support Group was founded in May 1989 by a majority of the families who lost loved ones in the Football Disaster at Hillsborough Stadium Sheffield, England on the 15th April 1989. A few families met whilst traveling to and from the Lord Justice Taylor Inquiry, and decided that we should contact every next of kin and form a group. We held our first meeting at the Vernon Sangster Sports Centre, Liverpool. By July of the same year, we had democratically elected a committee and held our first committee meeting.

As our logo implies, the bereaved families came together to help and support each other throughout the aftermath. It became very clear at an early stage that a strong group was needed if a campaign to bring out the truth and ensure justice was to succeed. These pages will help you realise the amount of work the HFSG has done in their search for justice and how hard we had to fight against insurmountable odds.

Yours truly
