About Freemasonry

How to Join

If after reading the information on this site, you are interested in becoming a Freemason, we advise that you talk first to a family member, friend or colleague whom you already know to be a member. They will be able to explain to you what they can about the fraternity and help you find a suitable Lodge. If you don't know anyone at all who is a member, write giving a brief description of yourself and your reasons for wanting to join to :

The Provincial Membership Co-ordinator
Henry Bentwood

Rossendale Masonic Hall
Ashday Lea
Haslingdon Road

Tel:        01706 833170


Arrangements will be made to meet you socially to find out more about you and to give you a chance to find out more about us. You would then be invited to meet members of a Lodge you might be joining, prior to being balloted for as a member . All being well a date would then be fixed for your admission.

If you require information on Freemasonry in general or the
Masonic Province of East Lancashire in particular,
please do not hesitate to contact
the Provincial Secretariat help desk on 0161 832 6256
