Frindsbury Extra is a civil parish on the Hoo Peninsula in the unitary authority of Medway in South East England. It was, until 1998, part of Kent and is still ceremonially associated via the Lieutenancies Act. It is conjoined to Strood to the south west, is bounded by Cliffe and Cliffe Woods to the north, Hoo to the east, and the River Medway to the south.
On 30 September 1894, the Local Government Board confirmed an order of Kent County Council, and Frindsbury civil parish was divided into Frindsbury Intra, and Frindsbury Extra. Intra joined the municipal borough of Rochester, while part of Frindsbury Extra joined Strood Rural District. The remaining part of Frindsbury Extra joined Rochester in 1934.
It contains the villages of Wainscott, Upnor and Lower Upnor, and the hamlets of Chattenden, White Wall and Stone Horse. It does not contain the village of Frindsbury, or All Saints Church and Church Green as they lie in Strood. The former council offices of Strood Rural District are in Frindsbury Extra.
