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 very excited about our University Lodges, Surrey Lodge No. 45 and Lodge of Wisdom No.55. Bourne Lodge 37 has decided to join the University Lodge Scheme too. We are also re-opening Centrum Lodge No. 46 later in 2017 to be another University Lodge. We are working in conjunction with United Grand Lodge of England, (masculine Freemasonry) to promote Freemasonry in our Universities.
We are working on enquiries from Kingston Jamaica, Edmonton in Alberta,Canada and Washington, DC in the United States.
