Elizabeth Volkenrath was an SS supervisor at several concentration camps during World War II.Brutal and cruel she eventually stood trial with Irma Grese and many other Nazi guards at the Belsen Trial. She was handed down a death sentence and was hanged on December 13, 1945, at Hameln by Albert Pierrepoint.
Henry Albert Pierrepoint was one of the United Kingdom's executioners from 1901 until 1910. His career was finished when he arrived the day before an execution at Chelmsford Prison "considerably the worse for drink", and fought his assistant John Ellis. The Home Office decided to strike Henry from the list of approved executioners. Henry was never officially "dismissed", but he was removed from the list of executioners and invitations to conduct executions ceased to arrive.
