Freemasonry is concerned with moral and spiritual values. It is based on the three Grand Principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth, which are taught by a series of ritual dramas using the tools and ceremonies of a stonemason as symbols.

The Order of Women Freemasons is the oldest and largest Masonic organisation for women in this country and works on the lines of regular male Freemasonry.

What is Freemasonry? Becoming a mason


The order has two Trust Funds, which are Registered Charities, and we have two properties where members can become permanent residents or short breaks for families and friends.

We raise large amounts of money for charity by holding social events, and these also give members the opportunity to get to know each other on an informal basis. At our Centenary celebrations in 2008, half a million pounds was presented to two cancer charities.

OWF Headquarters

In 1924 a member gave the freehold of 27 Pembridge Gardens in London’s Notting Hill – now a listed building - as a permanent home and headquarters for the Order.

All our members take pride in maintaining this elegant house and its extensive Grand Temple in a fitting style. There is also a second, smaller Temple.
