Welcome to the website of the West Lancashire District
of the Order of the Allied Masonic Degrees
of England and Wales and District and Councils Overseas (“the Order”).
It is hoped that you find the information on the following pages to be instructive and useful. The Order is governed by the Grand Council, headed by the Grand Master, and administered from Mark Masons' Hall in London. Local administration is devolved to a number of Districts each of which oversees the Councils of the Order within its geographical area, and each District is headed by a District Grand Prefect, Deputy District Grand Prefect and Executive Committee.
All that seems dry and uninteresting, but as the Grand Master, Thomas Firth Jackson, emphasises whenever addressing Meetings, be it of Grand Council or a District Grand Council or an individual Council, Meetings of this Order are intended to be happy and enjoyable occasions for persons who are genuinely interested in extending their knowledge of, and interest in, freemasonry in a wider context.
To anyone interested in joining the Order, you must already be a Craft master mason, a Royal Arch Companion, and a Mark master mason.  As mentioned above, membership of the Order is through a Council of the Order.
Should you wish to pursue your interest in the Order, please contact the District Grand Secretary, Geoff Catterall, either by 'phone (07702139980) or email (secretary@west-lancs-amd.co.uk). He will be ready to give you further information or assistance which you then require.
With my kindest regards and best wishes,
R.W. Brother, Paul Snape
District Grand Prefect
