A welcome from the master:

Founded by the brethren with a seafaring background, brethren who were aware of the close-knit supportive fraternity that all seafarers become absorbed into; this lodge was named to honour that fraternity , which its Founders considered to  be epitomised by the spirit always shown by the ships company of ‘the small ships’. The very heart of such spirit was demonstrated so vividly in Nicolas Monsarrat’s work “The Cruel Sea”, in which the star is the flower class corvette, H.M.S Compass Rose.

Like the convoys which the corvettes escorted, this lodge has no restrictions concerning where its members are recruited from, other than the normal ones which apply to all lodges, but all members strive to emulate that close-knit relationship of the brethren of the sea, and to encourage that spirit the lodge follows many naval traditions, one of the principle lodge meetings being held in late October to celebrate Vice-Admiral Lord Nelsons stunning victory at Trafalgar.

With such a unique background, a great spirit is fostered in the lodge, which, naturally enough, causes all its members to regard it as a rather special lodge.

We hope that our website will tell you more about the Compass Rose Lodge and  Freemasonry in general.

Within Warwickshire  we have around 4,500 members meeting in 190 Lodges at 17 different locations.
Freemasonry is a fraternal society that expects a high standard of personal conduct of its members and it promotes Fellowship, Charity and Integrity as well as care and concern for the family and the wider community.

I do hope that you enjoy browsing and ask you to contact us should you have any further questions.
