Sorry Stephen, even at my most playful and artistic I have not gone all way to that Duchampian act of murder as art. I am without even one word to describe such an act. Okay perhaps two as a guess: "the aristocrats"

Nope.

This is a ten letter word.

How many people on the list?

This is not a coincidence

It certainly is - well done, you got there in the end

Anyone want an explanation?

Okay, you got me, I did not consider the plate glass or axe used on some to be the work of the good doctor. Please do explain.

Stephen it was a little like pulling teeth wasn't it. I'll leave the explanation up to you, but for anyone who hasn't got it and is still trying to work it out, my previous wrong guess of subsequent or succeeding is a big clue. I think you might kick yourself Jonathan, I certainly did.

The people were all beheaded. As Stan suggested, it was an instruction rather than the answer. You need to remove the heads off the people on the list. For those who do cryptic crosswords, "head" is often an indicator of the first letter. So remove the first letter from the names on the list

gnes (Saint)
uan Sanchez Villa-Lobos Ramirez
ictor Kruger
liver Cromwell
lympe de Gouges
obespierre
tephen the Pope (Saint)
iers Legh of Lyme
nne Boleyn
eith Jennings

Now read down the new first column...
