Mark Master Masons of Surrey
Mark Grand Lodge Investiture

In September, members of the Provincial Executive and other Brethren went along to Freemasons Hall to support those Surrey Brethren who have been promoted in Grand Rank.

We had a warm welcome from W.Bro. Peter Unwin, Past Grand Steward, as we walked up the main staircase.

The meeting was opened in ample form by the Pro Grand Master, MW.Bro. Raymond John Smith who, after the regular business of Grand Lodge was completed, promoted a number of Brethren in Grand Rank. Our Grand Steward, W.Bro. John Woodville, was a member of the carousel.

Sadly W.Bro. Derek William Barr of Comites Sigillorum Mark Lodge No 1352 passed away the week prior to the meeting. He had been promoted to PGJD.

After the meeting, the Provincial Grand Master, the Deputy Provincial Grand Master, the Assistant Provincial Grand Masters, along with Surrey Brethren gathered for the customary photograph.
