If you haven't yet located this information, you can probably find it in the book "Hangmen of England: a History of Execution from Jack Ketch to Albert Pierrepoint" by Brian Bailey. I don't have the book and I don't plan to get it, but I did happen to see an excerpt posted on "The Billingham Families of Lancashire" web site that mentions that Henry Pierpoint (also spelled Henry Pierrepoint) was an assistant hangman (1901-1903) to James Billingham and his son William Billingham in Farnworth, Lancashire.
