In response to your query re the locking frame at Hitchin Yard:-

The original frame was Stevens and Co and located at the the front of the box. This is the one in the photo you attached.

A new LNER RS Co frame was installed in the rear of the box in 1946.
Yes the later lever frame at Hitchin Yard was located in the rear of the box the same as the lever frame was in Welwyn Garden City.

Personally I usually prefer boxes with there lever frames located in the rear of the box rather than at the front.
