A national memorial service will take place at St Paul's Cathedral exactly six months on from the Grenfell Tower disaster.
Grenfell Tower survivors and families of the bereaved made the request to hold the service. The Cathedral and the Bishop of Kensington, has worked with residents to create an order of service to focus on remembering those who lost their lives, on providing messages of support for the bereaved, and on offering strength and hope for the future, for those of all faiths and none.
The service is designed to remember those who died, to show solidarity with the bereaved and survivors, and to give thanks for everyone who assisted on the ground at the time of the tragedy and since, including emergency services, the recovery team, community response, public support, and volunteers. The service will enable the nation to stand together with those directly affected by the Grenfell Tower fire and together express hopes for the future.
St Paul's Cathedral has been chosen to host the service because of its national focus, which will ensure that we remember what happened and consider why such a tragedy must never happen again.
