Where can I find the names of Royal Navy frigates that served in the Caribbean during the period July-August 1781?

Not easily found.   

Some years ago  a chap named Derek Cripps produced a book/CD "Royal Navy Ships, Captains, Stations 1773 - 1807" which showed the info you wanted - but it is now a rarity.     I have a copy and can extract the info for 1781 and post it here.
