Welcome to the the online home of Sir Thomas White Lodge & Chapter.
If you have come to this page you are probably new to masonry or just curious to learn what it is all about.
This page is designed to point visitors towards some information both on this site and elsewhere, based on some broad questions:
Perhaps you are thinking becoming a Freemason?
- Are you thinking of becoming a Freemason? is a very useful starting point published by the United Grand Lodge of England
- Our Charity page gives information about the good causes we support
- Our Members page lists some of the members of our Lodge if you were looking for a familiar face or name
- If you are an old boy or former pupil of a different school or a university student you might look at the list of PSLC Lodges or the Federation of Schools’ Lodges, or try the list of University lodges that are part of AMULL
- For ladies interested in Freemasonry – whether OMTs, staff of the School or otherwise – we would be happy to make an introduction to HFAF where there are plans afoot for a schools’ lodge
- You could email our secretary if you wanted to chat to someone about our Lodge.
You may be an OMT or member of the staff who is merely curious what this is all about?
- You may be interested in the connections between the School and the Lodge
- Even if you are not thinking about becoming a Freemason, UGLE’s publication Are you thinking of becoming a Freemason? is a very useful starting point and answers many questions
- This page gives an overview of how and why our Lodge was founded and by whom, almost a 150 years ago
- Our Links page can connect you to other relevant and we hope interesting websites
- If you a Crosbeian, you may want to visit the website of our sister lodge linked to Merchant Taylors’ School, Crosby.
Perhaps you are researching a member of your family or other connection who was a member?
- Our tribute to members of the Lodge who gave their lives in the two world wars may be of interest
- There is a list of our Worshipful Masters
