Capital Punishment

A rather gruesome website, but useful for those who have ancestors were executed in the U.K. Personally I think I would skip over the section on how it was done and go onto the list of those who died. 

Some of my ancestors were well known to the magistrates, but as far as I know they all managed to escape the noose, the nearest who got to being hung was Joseph Silcock who took part in the Swing Riots in Hampshire and ended up transported to Tasmania.
