In 1925, he was appointed an Exon in the King's Bodyguard of the Yeomen of the Guard. He served as Ensign from 1937 until his retirement in 1950.[3] He succeeded to the baronetcy in 1938 upon on the death of his brother, Charles Edward St John Frederick. During the Second World War, he commanded a battalion of the Home Guard.[1]

Frederick was appointed Commander of the Royal Victorian Order (CVO) in the 1944 New Year Honours.[4]


Frederick played first-class cricket from 1903 to 1907. He was a right-handed batsman who bowled right-arm slow.

Frederick made his first-class debut for Hampshire against Leicestershire during the 1903 County Championship. From 1903 to 1905 Frederick represented Hampshire in five County Championship matches, with his final first-class match for Hampshire coming against Yorkshire. In his five matches for the club, Frederick took 9 wickets at a bowling average of 36.77, with best figures of 3-41.

In 1907, Frederick represented the Europeans (India), making his debut against the Parsees in the final of the Bombay tournament. This was Frederick's final first-class match, during which he claimed a single wicket.


In 1913, Frederick married Edith Katherine Cortlandt, daughter of Colonel William Hutchinson Mulloy. They had two sons and a daughter. The younger son, Lieutenant John Christopher Frederick, was killed in action in 1943 in Tunisia. His surviving son, Major Charles Boscawen Frederick, inherited the baronetcy.[1]
