Royal and Select Masters - Wyvern District


R.Ill.Comp. Kenneth L. Downes, J.P.

District Grand Master

Welcome to Our Website




It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Order of Royal and Select Masters in the Wyvern District, which encompasses the counties of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire.


This website provides information for those who are keen to take their Freemasonry further, once they have been both Advanced in the Mark Degree and Exalted into the Holy Royal Arch, and find themselves ready to explore the four highly dramatic and informative degrees of this Order.


The four Royal and Select ceremonies will take you on a journey leading from the Third Degree to the Royal Arch. The Order, often known as the Cryptic (referring to a subterranean chamber or vault) Degrees, is generally recognised to contain some of the most beautiful ritual in Freemasonry.


 This website also provides a means for Members to access news items, information about forthcoming District Events, necessary forms and useful documents. Also accessible are points of contact within the District and in our Councils.

If you are considering participating in this wonderful Order, I trust you find that the brief details whet your appetite. Whatever the reason for your visit I hope to see you soon.
