This year’s remembrance service was again kindly organised by the Pound for Piper Memorial Trust (PFP) at Hazelhead Park on Saturday 6th July 2024 at 1pm.

This year’s service of remembrance was once again kindly organised by the Pound for Piper Memorial Trust (PFP) and held in the North Sea Memorial Rose Gardens at the Piper Alpha Memorial, located in Aberdeen, Hazelhead Park on Saturday 6th July 2024.

The service was conducted by Reverend Michael Mair (Oil & Gas Chaplain), featuring Calum McIlroy, an accomplished musician who provided music composed especially for the service alongside a traditional piper.

The service included:

  • Prayer & Act of Remembrance
  • Reading of the names of 167 Souls
  • One Minute Silence
  • Laying of Wreaths/Flowers
  • Commemoration

Refreshments were also provided courtesy of the Pound for Piper Memorial Trust (PFP) and were served to family and friends at the Park Café.

This year the oil chaplaincy kindly agreed to display the Piper Alpha Book of Remembrance, which has recently been rebound, so those attending the private reception could view it.

The Trustees of Pound for Piper and industry representatives, including Step Change in Safety, were also in attendance to support those who remain deeply impacted by the events of July 6th 1988.
