At the time the University of Birmingham Lodge was founded on 31st October 1936 in Birmingham Town Hall, Masonry was held in high public regard. King George Vth was the Grand Master. When he died Edward VIIIth acceded and at the same time resigned as Prov GM of Surrey, but then abdicated. George VIth (Prov GM of Middlesex) then became King and shortly after his enthronement was invested in the Albert Hall as Past GM. 

For many years the University of Birmingham Lodge was a very strong Lodge with one of the largest memberships in the Province. There are thousands of Graduates and members of staff many of whom are Masons, but it is clear that most are unaware of the University of Birmingham Lodge’s existence. 

The Internet is making a welcome difference. Our numbers are growing and we are looking forward to better years ahead.
