The 22nd of May was the anniversary of the Manchester Terrorist Attack but there was another anniversary that of the Quintinshill Rail Disaster. It was this anniversary, in 2012 that was chosen by British Transport Pensioners Federation (BTPF) to dedicate a memorial to all railway people who have served and given their life in service of their country. Each year there was a short service of commemoration at the National Arboretum led by the railway mission Chaplain Ralph Coleman. Prayers were also said for the victims of the terrorists incident of 2017 and for the victims of Grenfell Tower.
