1 September 1954 – Rupert Wells
Rupert Wells went to the gallows in 1954 for murdering his girlfriend. He was hanged in Wandsworth, aged 53.
Other famous inmates at Wandsworth include Oscar Wilde, gangster Ronnie Kray and Great Train Robber Ronnie Biggs.
It was built in 1851 and was originally known ominously as the Surrey House of Correction. Despite the death penalty having been abolished in 1965, the gallows were only taken down as recently as 1998, while the execution chamber has been truly reinvented. It is now used by prison officers as their tea room.
