Welcome to the Website of the Ancient and Masonic Order of the Scarlet Cord in the British Isles and its Districts and Consistories Overseas. The 21st of July 2010 marked a historic and significant date in the history of British Freemasonry. On that day the Ancient and Masonic Order of the Scarlet Cord was Inaugurated at Freemasons’ Hall, Great Queen Street, London, the first Masonic order to be inaugurated in the British Isles in almost three quarters of a century. Full details of the Inauguration are shown elsewhere in the Website.

A Roll of Honour Scheme was established for those Provinces, Conclaves and members who wanted to Become Founders of the Order.

The Scarlet Cord was originally set up in the early part of the 20th. Century and its roots lie in the provision of Charity. The full History of the Order, written by Most Worthy Brother Peter Glyn Williams, Past Grand Supreme Ruler of the Order of the Secret Monitor, is reproduced here.

Elsewhere in the Website we show the qualifications for membership, details of the Regalia related to the various Grades of the Order; a list of Provincial and District Grand Summi (The equivalent of Provincial Grand Masters); the Grand Officers who were invested on 21st. July 2010, as well as the current list of Grand Officers; plus a full list of the Founding Provinces and Consistories of the Order. We also feature news and diary sections, and a contact us page which can be found here.

We hope that you enjoy using our Website and would welcome any suggestions regarding additional content or modifications designed to enhance the experience of those using the website. Please contact us at: wbm@thescarletcord.org.uk
