27 November 1913 – Frederick Robertson
Frederick Robertson’s neck was slung in a noose for murder in 1913.
The 26-year-old was hanged at Pentonville prison for the double murder of his relatives Nellie and Beatrice Robertson.
You don’t really get names like Beatrice anymore, not unless you’re royal. She’s the only one I can think of anyway. In fact Nellie is pretty rare too, RnB stars excepted.
