Departed Merit
As Masons we are taught to respect death as a natural part of life. A Masonic funeral is often the last opportunity to reflect on how much a Brother meant to us or to his Lodge and to say our final farewells.

The Central Divsion website has introduced a new service to enable Lodges to notify the passing of a Brother; for users of this website to be notified when a Brother passes; and to view the database of recent passings.

The purpose of this new feature is to make it easier for you to keep track of departed merit; and notify you of the funeral arrangements so that you can consider attending.
