Lodge Bye-Laws.


The first Lodge Bye-Laws were approved and confirmed at a meeting of the Lodge on 5th February 1902, three months after the Lodge was founded, and were sanctioned by Provincial Grand Lodge on 13 November 1902.

The booklet containing the Bye-Laws is divided into several parts  - 

    Introduction which explains the reason for these Bye-Laws

    Copy of the Lodge Charter which contains the wording of the Charter and covers pages five, 6-7 and 8-9.

    General Bye-Laws

    The Bye-Laws themselves which are divided into - Constitution; Office-Bearers; Meetings for Business; Initiates, Affiliates, &c; Visitors; and Benevolent Fund covering pages 12-13,14-15,16-17,18-19 and 20.

 At first glance there is one glaring omission - the list of Office-Bearers does not include either Senior or Junior Deacons although the Brethren who originally filled these posts are named in the copy of the Lodge Charter.


On 3 May 1905 the Bye-Laws were modified as follows but the Introduction, Copy of the Lodge Charter and General Bye-Laws were left unchanged. The new Bye-Laws are in pages 11-12, 13-14, 15-16,17-18 and 19-20.
