LIVERPOOL, England -- Liverpool will host the final memorial service for families of the Hillsborough soccer stadium disaster victims on the 27th anniversary in April.

At the FA Cup semifinal between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest in 1989, a crush in an overcrowded standing-only section at Sheffield Wednesday's stadium led to 96 Liverpool fans dying.

New inquests are being held after the original verdicts of accidental death were overturned.

And Margaret Aspinall, who heads the Hillsborough Family Support Group, says ''it is likely that the inquests will be concluded before the anniversary so this final memorial service will provide the families with some closure.''

Liverpool's Anfield stadium has hosted annual services attended by former and current players.

Aspinall hopes people ''continue to remember the 96 in their own perhaps more private way.''
