14 April 1909 – Joseph Edwin Jones

Joseph Edwin Jones protested his innocence to his dying day, even to his children who visited their condemned dad in jail.

For Jones had been found guilty of killing their mum. His wife Charlotte Jones had been shot and the miner had been sentenced to death for the crime.

As a result, Jones was sent to the gallows on this day in 1909 at Stafford, where he was hanged by brothers Henry and Thomas Pierrepoint.
