The three-year-old died on Wednesday night last week, after being hit in East End Road near the Five Bells pub shortly after 7pm.
Since then flowers and teddies have been left at the scene.
Police, paramedics and the London Air Ambulance were called following reports of a collision between a car and a small child.
He was taken to hospital by ambulance, but was pronounced dead shortly after arriving. His next of kin have been informed.
