As part of a national display, residents are also encouraged to stand on doorsteps at 8pm with a torch or candle to signify a beacon of remembrance.
The Town Hall in Romford will be lit up in yellow, the colour of the Marie Curie #DayOfReflection.
In Havering, 861 residents have now lost their lives due to Covid-19.
