Lieutenant Kingdon Tregosse Frost's grave was unknown for nearly 80 years until Alan Gregson deduced he was buried in Wiheries Graveyard. He then presented his evidence to the CWGC and persuaded them to recognise Lt Frost's resting place.

Below is an acount in Alan's own words of how it went about it:

Lt Frost's Grave, Wiheries Cemetery
The photograph shows Wiheries Cemetery as it looks now. Run your mouse over the photo to see what was like in the early 1990s, BEFORE it had been determined that the end grave on the right was occupied by Lieutenant Frost.

The garden area has since been replaced by gravel, but as the photograph at the top of the page shows, Lieutenant Frost's grave has now been re-named.
Lt Frost's Memorial
Rededication of Lt Frost's grave
Lieutenant Frost's family had placed the memorial to him in the Parish Church of St. Peter, St. Paul and St. Thomas, Bovey Tracey, Devon.

The photograph on the right shows the unveiling of the new headstone on 24th August 1994, exactly 80 years to the day after his death, by Brigadier M D K Dauncey, DSO, DL.


(I am grateful to Alan Gregson for these two photographs.)
