Members of the Mark Provincial Executive present were the Provincial Grand Master, Wy.Bro. Ian Clark; the Deputy Provincial Grand Master, Bro. Richard Baker; the two Assistant Provincial Grand Masters, Wy.Bro. John French and Bro. Chris Eley; and Wy.Bro. David Blackburn, (Past Deputy Provincial Grand Master).

After the Conclave was closed the Temple was arranged for a demonstration of the Conclave of Mourning. A Conclave of Mourning was introduced to mark the death of the first Grand Supreme Ruler, Dr Issacher Zacharie, and symbolises David’s mourning for the loss of his friend Jonathan. This very moving ceremony was excellently performed by R.Wy. Bro. Michael Barnes and the Officers of the E L J Smith Conclave.
