This was taken from the book ‘Moonlight Sonata’ “As the long queue of relatives stretched outside the Council House for news of loved ones, the appalling work of identification went on. Rumours spread of mass produced coffins. Public baths were being used as emergency mortuaries and arrangements were made at the London Road Cemetery for the mass graves - two long, parallel trenches - and the two funeral services.
The bodies were put into shrouds and taken to the cemetery on the nights proceeding the services. All were in coffins, many of which were brought in from neighboring cities to cope with the numbers required. 
At 11 am on the dull, grey morning of 19 November, the first service was held. (The second was four days later.) No general announcement of the service was made and fighter planes were sent up against possible air attacks from the Germans.”
