I thought that both limited membership to Master Masons not recognised but not proscribed by UGLE.


Why would they ask G Sec?

Fundamental difference between the way US masonry is ordered and the way masonry in England & Wales is ordered

The 'York Rite' is a way of ordering some of the degrees which are worked under their own GL's here in England & Wales, in that respect its an artificial construct
The same degrees exist here, but aren't grouped as a 'rite'

The Scottish Rite likewise exists in the UK, here it is AASR

If you are used to the US system it can be quite a headache to understand the organisational and structural differences


Thank you so much for this Mr Benn

At last I've finally found what the bloody York and Scottish Rites are!!

I'll class this as today's daily advancement (36)

What Grand Lodge jurisdiction is your Lodge under?
