The Law requires that all executed prisoners must be buried inside the goal. They are buried in the ground between the outer and inner wall, also next to A wing, just outside the Gallows door. People who died of natural causes were buried in a conventional cemetery outside the goal. Number, initals and the date of the hanging are painted on the walls indicating the place of burial. A total of 45 people are recorded as buried after hanging within the goal, but only 34 of these have marked graves.
