The first images of the memorials made to honour those affected by the Croydon tram crash last year have been revealed.

On the first anniversary of the tragedy, two permanent memorials will be erected around town, one close to the incident site in Sandilands, and a second civic memorial in New Addington.

An artist's impression (as shown above) gives the public the first look at what those memorials will look like.

his tragedy had a big impact on Croydon and it is right two fitting memorials are in place because we will never forget.

On the morning of the anniversary (November 9), a civic ceremony will take place in New Addington during which the permanent memorial will be unveiled.

“The civic ceremony will be the time to come together as a community to reflect and remember, and is also an opportunity to pay tribute to the tireless efforts of the emergency services and all those who helped in the aftermath of the incident," Councillor Tony Newman said.

"I’d encourage anyone who wants to attend to join us in New Addington and show their support.”

A stone plinth has been commissioned for the Sandilands site which will be inscribed with the names of those who lost their lives and the date of the incident.

A second plinth with a carved inscription will also be installed in the centre of New Addington, with additional seating set to be built around it.
