Croydon will remember those who lost their lives in the Sandilands tram crash at a civic ceremony in New Addington this Wednesday, November 9.
The ceremony is set to begin at 11am at Central Parade, where a memorial was installed for those killed in the derailment.
Dane Chinnery, Donald Collett, Robert Huxley, Philip Logan, Dorota Rynkiewicz, Philip Seary and Mark Smith died and more than 60 others were injured when a tram left the tracks near Sandilands tram stop on November 9, 2016.
