Between 1835 and 1867 31 people were hanged in public at Kirkdale gaol in Liverpool before crowds ranging from 500 to 100,000. This book details the circumstances behind the 31 murders and gives a brief account of what happened on each execution day. Although Kirkdale gaol was in Liverpool, it carried out judicial hangings for all convicted at the South Lancashire Assizes, which covered Liverpool, Manchester, Warrington, Preston and Blackburn.
