Two repeat Kempenfelt class leaders were ordered in February 1915, Grenville and Frobisher (renamed Parker before launch), followed by orders for three more in July; in December 1915 a sixth was ordered from Denny Bros. Early in 1916 the C-in-C and Commodore (T) asked for modifications to future leaders, suggesting that they should have more freeboard, more guns bearing ahead and the bridge moved further aft. There was also a request for a slower roll, as the Kempenfelts had a very rapid period of roll. The DNC said that it would be extremely difficult to increase freeboard in most of the new leaders as frames were already being bent, but it might be feasible in Saumarez and Anzac (Nos 5 and 6), which could have 0.3m higher forecastles. This was finally approved only for Anzac. The bridge could be moved 4.0m aft by reducing the boiler rooms from three to two, allowing one 102mm gun to be put on a superimposed platform in 'B' position. As the forward boiler room now had two boilers the forward uptakes were combined in one thicker funnel, which was raised to keep smoke clear of the compass platform. The new profile was a great improvement, and the Parker class were a great success. Anzac's higher forecastle and squarer-section funnels made her easy to distinguish from her sisters. All were distinguishable by the thick tall fore funnel.
1918, Seymour: was converted to minelayer: - 2 x 1 - 102/40, 2 x 2 - 533 TT; + rails for 80 mines.
Hoste collided with destroyer Negro off Shetland Islands 19.12.1916, two her depth-charges detonated and stern of ship was demolished. Ship was finally abandoned.
