Greville Lodge is one of 8 Masonic 'Craft' lodges meeting at Alderson House, Warwick, within the province of Warwickshire. It is an extremely active lodge with 35 members
With a full calendar of ritual and social events, we certainly achieve one of our aims, that Freemasonry should be enjoyed.
I believe that Freemasonry has a vital part to play in this 'disposable age'. Where history can provide an anchor and where charity can provide a purpose and where values provide an identity.
W.Bro Richard Lynes. Worshipful Master 2012-13
The bond of friendship
The distinguishing mark of a Mason while within the Lodge is the Masonic Apron.
..."It is more ancient that the Golden Fleece or Roman Eagle, more Honorable that the Garter or any other order in existence, being the badge of innocence and the bond of friendship".....
From its earliest days, Freemasonry has been concerned with the care of orphans, the sick and the aged. This work continues today.
Taken collectively, Freemasonry is the biggest giver to Charitable causes in the world. Click here for more information
The Greville Lodge name and our Crest
The founders of the Lodge approached the present Earl of Warwick around the time of the Petition with a request to use the Family name. This was not only agreed to, but permission was given to use the Family Crest, the 'Bear & Ragged Staff'.
The design includes a figure of a man on Horseback to represent the celebrated Guy, Earl of Warwick, a man who lived more than 1,000 years ago and known for his great valour. Indeed Guy is credited with having killed the fierce "Dun Cow" before going on a pilgrimage to the Holy Lands before returning and living as a hermit in a cave at Guy's Cliff.
The Two great pillars, of course, represent the Porchway to Freemasonry adjoined with the Celestial & Terrestrial Globes.

Finding out more about Freemasonry
There are as many myths and misconceptions about Freemasonry as there are colours in the spectrum. Freemasonry is a non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. Freemasonry prides itself on its transparency. Not only are Freemasons completely free to acknowledge their membership, they are encouraged to do so.
Freemasonry instils in its members a moral and ethical approach to life. Freemasonry also teaches and practices concern for people, care for the less fortunate and help for those in need. Click here for more information on Freemasonry
