Freemasonry for women explained

Welcome to the website of Freemasonry for Women

The Honourable Fraternity of Ancient Freemasons (HFAF) is a fraternity for women and organised by women. It was founded in 1913 and membership is open to women of any race or religion, who are able to profess a belief in a Supreme Being. Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest secular fraternal societies. It is concerned with moral and spiritual values. Its members are taught its precepts by a series of ceremonies.

Our Order has many lodges in the UK including the Isle of Man, and as far as Carlisle in the north and south to Bournemouth and westwards to the Cotswolds. We have five overseas Lodges: one in Gibraltar, two in Spain,  one in Eastern Europe in Bucharest, Romania and our latest addition to the HFAF family in New Delhi in India. We are planning a lodge in Washington, DC for 2019.

We are participating in the University Scheme . We are working to open new lodges in Letchworth and  Uxbridge and also to re-open Centrum Lodge No. 46  in the near future to be University Lodges. Surrey Lodge No. 45 is already working as a University Lodge. We are working in conjunction with United Grand Lodge of England, (masculine Freemasonry) to promote Freemasonry in our Universities.

We have tried to provide as much information as possible in our pages, but if you have any questions which haven’t been answered please use our contact form or email us on
