History

Installation 1967

Lodge Niederrhein N°892 was consecrated on the 5th December 1964 in the capital city of North Rhein Westfalia, Düsseldorf and has met regularly there ever since.

The first Worshipful Master was W Bro. WT King PProv GDC who has sadly now passed away. Since its consecration there has been some 36 Worshipful Masters. We are also proud to have as a member one of our founder members who is also a Past Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of British Freemasons in Germany.

Our meetings are held on the 1st Monday of February to May and September to December. The Installation Meeting is held on the 1st Saturday in June (public holidays permitting).

Our membership consists of both British and German nationals. For sometime a number of members were from the British Forces but with the gradual rundown of military personnel the membership now consists mainly both English speaking men resident and working in the Düsseldorf area and German nationals. However, we also have members from the Middle East, New Zealand, South Africa, Hong Kong and America, a truly international Brotherhood with the common good of benevolence, charity and comradeship as its aim.

Together with the Bond of Friendship Lodge No 890 from Bonn it forms the basis of the membership of Rheinland Chapter No 1 of the Royal Arch Chapter in Germany. Regular Meetings are held in Düsseldorf on the 3rd Monday in the months of June, September and November with the Installation Meeting taking place on the 1st Saturday in March.

With it’s centralized location near to the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre the Lodge receives many visitors from travelling brethren from other recognized constitutions. We are of course, always delighted to see such brethren and anyone visiting the area is more than welcome to get in touch and will always receive a warm welcome.
