The first method of hanging was "hoisting" in which a rope would be thrown over a beam and the convicted person would then be hoisted into the air by others pulling on the rope.{{citation needed|date=April 2013}} The slip knot would then tightly close around the neck until [[strangulation]]. A variation of this included the person with a rope around their neck to stand on a cart and then it would be pushed from under them. This led to the development of suspension in which "the drop" caused by jerking something from underneath the offender became the main component of the execution.<ref>Anderson,'' Concise History'', 12.</ref> Executioners experimented with the length of the rope for the drop. They specifically began to discover new ways of causing instant death upon hanging. In 1872, the length of a drop extended to nearly five-feet which dislocated the neck perfectly. Almost one year later, the length of the drop was extended to seven feet.<ref>Anderson, ''Concise History'', 30-31.</ref>

The majority of offenders put to death by Canadian civilian authorities were executed by the "[[Hanging#Long_drop|long drop]]" technique of [[hanging]] developed in the [[United Kingdom]] by [[William Marwood]]. This method ensured that the prisoner's neck was broken instantly at the end of the drop, resulting in the prisoner dying of [[asphyxia]] while unconscious, which was considered more humane than the slow death by [[strangulation]] which often resulted from the previous "short drop" method. The short drop sometimes gave a period of suffering before death finally took place.
