Coventry was that city the night of November 14, 1940. At 8:15, the bombs were falling across the city. All night long the city burned and her Cathedral burned with her, emblem of the eternal truth that, when men suffer, God suffers with them. The fire watch team at the Cathedral called for fire equipment- it was all in use. When that arrived, the mains faltered and quit flowing. All night long the city burned and her Cathedral burned with her, emblem of the eternal truth that, when men suffer, God suffers with them 568 killed, 863 seriously injured and 393 lightly injured. The total casualty figure was therefore 1824, or 1431 if the 'lightly injured', . those able to go home after treatment, were excluded.
