Well I have read variously "Frozz'en'den" "Frost'un'dun" "Fross'en'dn",
anyone have other pronunciations?

I am almost too embarrased to visit these Suffolk ancestral homes for fear
of making a fool of myself in the local pub!

Good one Brian, Don't keep us in suspense ... tell us how Frostenden is
pronounced?

Maybe someone else has a gem of local pronunciation that will brighten our
day and help correct us foreigners who try to spell phonetically, the names
of places we heard tales about in our childhood.
