Catholic Anglican martyrs
Here in Oxford much has been made of those who suffered for the Protestant religion under Queen Mary; and the Roman Catholics have very properly celebrated their own martyrs... Largely forgotten are those members of the Church of England who were executed — without trial — in 1549 because they would not accept the newly state-imposed protestant worship.

... the execution of four Oxfordshire clergy... It was specified that the last two should be hanged from their steeples. Laymen also suffered...
From Fr John Hunwicke.
