Our Members

The Old Chigwellian Lodge, number 6648 is an “Old Boys’ Lodge” which was formed for the convenience of Old Chigwellians (and their close relatives), Governors, Masters and Officers of Chigwell School, whether already a Freemason or those interested in becoming one.

The Old Chigwellian Lodge was founded and consecrated in 1948 by a number of Old Chigwellians including the Headmaster (1939-1946) of the era, Dr. Robert James, CBE. Of course, Dr. James later became the Headmaster of Harrow School. The Lodge has frequently attracted members from the staff at Chigwell School including the late Barrie Sydenham who was the Deputy Head, and more recently The Reverend Michael Bradley who is a music master and Boys’ Boarding Housemaster at Grange Court. Alan Brooker, JP, DL has been a member of the Lodge for many years and he also Chaired the Board of Governors at Chigwell School.
