72 people were killed in the incident in 2017, which is considered one of the U.K.’s worst modern disasters.

The service is organized by Grenfell United, which is an organization that formed after the tragedy, composed of its survivors and the families of the victims.

Aside from organizing the memorial, the group also offers pastoral care for victims and advocates for measures to ensure another fire of that magnitude doesn’t break out again.
