In my info Wilhelm Wolff had his death sentence commuted to 15 years in prison.
Wagner, Rost and Seidel had their death sentences commuted to Life imprisonment.

Linzner (22.05.1896 in Ponitz)
Kendzia (02.04.1893 in Breslau)
Spiecker (29.03.1905 in Forstenau)

Paul Titel died in prison before his appeal against the verdict had been decided (Rüter, 2008, p.647).
Since Kurt Marten's appeal against the verdict was repealed on Dec 14, 1948 (Rüter, 2008, p.652) Titel must have died in 1948.

Schäfer. Ernst Reinhard (05/11/1884 Reichenau)
Schneller. Dr.med. Albert Gebhard (04/10/1888 Waldmunchen)

Eduard Reinicke died in Hoheneck prison in 1948 (Hacke, 2011, p.172).

Dr. Albert Schneller was pardoned in 1952, he died in 1975. Actually the judge and the complete jury submitted a plea for clemency already on the day the verdict was passed out. Schneller was sentenced mainly 'for reasons of foreign policy' as the communist jury member Dämmig put it. Dämmig signed the plea too (Hacke, 2011, pp.172).

Hi Ron,
Is your source available on-line?
I want to believe they were executed but I must have got the commutation of sentences info from somewhere.
Currently going through notes from Wiener Library & the Trial (1511a & 1511b copies) but no joy.
Best regards
