"Colonel Cavaye, on the Staff of the Duke of Connaught, sustained severe injuries by being thrown from a dogcart at the entrance to Portsmouth Dockyard yesterday. He was removed in an insensible condition to his residence."





1894 Whitaker: CAVAYE W.F. Colonel Asst Adj General Portsmouth

Specially employed during the South African War, 1900, 1901, 1902 (medal with clasp; King's medal with clasps)
[Commandant, Keraman District from 11 July 1900]
Special Service: British Expeditionary Force, France, 1917-1919 (two war medals, despatches).
Twice Mayor of Kensington, his portrait hangs in Chelsea Town Hall.

"Served with distinction in the South African War of 1879 (Zulu Campaign) and again in the Boer War of 1899-1902, being decorated for both campaigns. It is understood that he also served in the First World War, 1914-18. In civilian life he twice became Mayor of the Royal Borough of Kensington (1907-1909), and sat as a representative of South Kensington on the London County Council. He lived in Neville Terrace, London SW7 and had a country home in Birchenbridge, near Horsham, Sussex."
[He lived at 6 Neville Terrace, Brompton.

"Chelsea Grove and Clifton Place, SW10 were incorporated into one thoroughfare, to be known as Cavaye Place, with effect from 13 December 1937. The name 'Cavaye' was chosen to commemorate the work done on behalf of the people of Kensington by Major-General William Frederick Cavaye."



A particularly impressive funeral took place at Stopham on Wednesday, when the remains of Major - General William Frederick Cavaye, son-in-law of the late Colonel the Right Hon. Sir Walter Barttelot, Bart., of Stopham, were interred.
After his military career General Cavaye had taken an active interest in public affairs, having for many years been a member of the London County Council, and also twice Mayor of one of the London boroughs.
Major-General Cavaye had had interesting military service, for he commanded the 2nd Royal Sussex Regiment in Egypt and India, and during his residence at the latter place he became Military Secretary to the Duke of Connaught, at the time His Royal Highness was Commander-in-Chief at Bombay. He saw active service in the Zulu War and South African War, and also served with the Army in France in 1917-19, although he had reached the advanced age of 70 years, he was mentioned in dispatches. He had been a member of the Sussex Territorial Association since its inception.
The first part of the funeral service was held at Brompton Parish Church, and later in the day the body was brought to Stopham for the interment. The coffin, which was covered with a Union Jack, and upon which rested his sword, cap, and decorations, was met at Stopham House by a firing party which had been drawn from the Depot of the Royal Sussex Regiment at Chichester, and a party of bearers composed of Sergeants from the same regiment.
The funeral rites were conducted by the Rev. Prebendary Gough (the Rector of Brompton), who was assisted by the Rector of Stopham (the Rev. H. S. Wansbrough). Three volleys were fired by the firing party, after which bayonets were fixed and the men presented arms, this being followed by buglers sounding the "Last Post" and "Reveille".

Major-General William Frederick Cavaye (1845-1926) by unknown artist. In 1910 Cavaye was elected to the LCC as a Municipal Reform councillor for South Kensington.  He held the seat for fifteen years before retiring from the LCC at the 1925 election due to ill-health. He became the Mayor of the Royal Borough of Kensington.  He was born in Edinburgh and was educated at the Edinburgh Academy and entered the Royal Military College, Sandhurst. In 1865 Cavaye was commissioned as an ensign into the 107th Regiment of Foot/Royal Sussex Regiment and rose through the officer ranks till he became the battalion’s commanding officer with the rank of lieutenant-colonel on 15 August 1883.  He was then made a Colonel and was on ‘special service in the Second Boer War 1899-1902 and mentioned in dispatches. Following the outbreak of the First World War he returned to active service and was appointed commanding officer of the 2nd East Anglian Division in 1914 with the rank of brigadier-general. He subsequently served on “special service” with the British Expeditionary Force in France from 1917 – 1919, and was raised to the rank of major-general.  The painting was dumped in the County Hall carpet store in the basement from which it was rescued.
