Royal Hanover Lodge 1777 - Consecrated in 1878

We have a place in history

Established in 1878, the Royal Hanover Lodge was named to perpetuate the memory of King George V of Hanover and his close connection with our own British Royal Family. We were greatly honoured when the last King of Hanover's son Ernest Augustus, Duke of Cumberland not only consented to the use of the name, but granted the necessary permission for the use of the Royal Coat of Arms as the Lodge's crest. Being Middlesex Masons, we are proud to have a historical connection with our own British Royal Family.

Royal Hanover Lodge 1777 Officers


W.BRO. C Grant

Worshipful Master

Colin was a regular LOI member for many years, as is part of the original group that came to us from Ionic Lodge in London. Colin has always got stuck into officer roles and is a dependable member of the Lodge. As Master this year, he is looking forward to a busy year for Royal Hanover.


Senior Warden

Our Lodge entertainer and mischief maker with a heart of gold. Always lightens the mood and is a great asset when in LOI as well as a very versatile member for taking different roles when needed. He loves his tech and gadgets as well.


Junior Warden

Thomas is really getting into his stride now as he continues to get involved and is following his progression through lodge roles very well. He looks to have the makings of a great ritualist.  He also has a great collector of masonic literature &books. He is a great addition to Royal Hanover Lodge.



W.Bro. Laurie has also come from Ionic Lodge 227 and has just finished a great year as IPM. He loves his travel and he is also a keen historian. We are hoping he will start writing some great masonic articles soon.



W.Bro. Tom is our treasurer and he does a sterling job. He has a great sense of humour and is always a regular at LOI. He is well know for pinching everyone's after dinner mints at festive board. He says they are for his children, but we know better.



Peter is another one of our regular LOI members and is always ready to jump into different roles when called upon. He is also another one that loves the football banter with our W.Master Allan.


Director of Ceremonies

Peter is one of our great ritualists and he has a big personality to go with his ritual. Always ready to have a laugh but also makes an awesome Director of Ceremonies. We have a phrase in Royal Hanover, along the lines of "How would Peter do this!"



Derek is another one of long term regulars and is our Assistant Director of Ceremonies. He is also our Treasurer of Royal Hanover Chapter. He juggles a busy work life with his masonic duties, and is always on the ball in his temple work.


Charity Steward

John has done us proud over the years and has led us to gaining Grand Patron for the 2020 Festival. He has also recently introduced his Son into freemasonry, Adam, who joined in January this year.

Michael and Oliver are best friends and joined Royal Hanover Lodge in the same meeting in a double initiation. He is another with a friendly warm smile. Recently made a father and so life is a little busy for him.
