"My Experiences as an Executioner" is a 1892 memoir by English executioner James Berry (1852–1913).

Snowden Ward", "How I Became an Executioner", "My First Execution", "My Method of Execution", "Other Methods of Execution", "Two Terrible Experiences", "How Murderers Die", "From the Murderer's Point of View", "On Capital Punishment", etc. Read & Co.
