This lodge was founded in 2003. The Order itself was founded in 1873.
Often referred to as ‘Cryptic Masonry’ this order confers four degrees which, arguably, include some of the most beautiful and inspiring Ritual to be found in Freemasonry. To become a ‘Companion’ within the order, an applicant must be both a Companion of the Royal Arch and a Mark Master Mason.
Providing a link between the Royal Arch, Mark Masonry and the Third Degree, this order provides a historical context to many of the events within masonic ritual and further insight into the character of one of its main protagonists.
As with many of the additional orders within freemasonry, the order of Royal and Select Masters is administered from Mark Masons Hall in St James St, London. Please click on the link provided for more information.
