When construction work began in January 2015, the memorial was placed into safe storage and the eternal flame was transferred to the Liverpool Cathedral.

On Wednesday afternoon, a service was held for the families at Anfield to mark the memorial’s relocation to a new position adjacent to 96 Avenue, where family, friends, supporters and visitors can continue to pay their respects to those who lost their lives as a result of the events that unfolded on April 15, 1989.

Rev Canon Dr Ellen Loudon also transferred the eternal flame back to the stadium from the Liverpool Cathedral, where it resided during the redevelopment work on the Main Stand.
