How do men join Freemasonry?

You will need a proposer and a seconder who will vouch that you are a man 'of good repute'.


If you don’t know a Freemason we can arrange an informal meeting to make contact and get to know you. 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.

If, by mutual agreement, it is decided that your application should proceed, at the next lodge meeting the brethren of our lodge will then vote on the proposal for you to be made a Freemason and memberr of the Marquis of Granby Lodge No.124.

All being well, a date would then be fixed for your admission.


During this time you will be welcome to join us at our social functions and we can start to get to know each other in an informal way.


Soon enough you will be made a Freemason in the County of Durham and a member of Marquis of Granby Lodge No.124.
