One of the youngest and most vibrant Orders in the Masonic spectrum.

The Royal Order of the Masonic Knights of the Scarlet Cord was originally founded in 1889 but fell into abeyance in 1929 and remained dormant until it was revived as part of the Order of the Secret Monitor or Brotherhood of David and Jonathan around the turn of the century.

The revived Order proved so popular that it was decided to establish it as an independent Sovereign Order with the title of “The Ancient and Masonic Order of the Scarlet Cord in the British Isles and its Districts and Consistories Overseas”. The inauguration took place in a magnificent ceremony in the Grand Temple of Freemasons’ Hall, London, on 21st July 2010.

The Order of the Scarlet Cord is governed by the Grand Senatus headed by the Grand Summus, Most Distinguished Companion Ian Stanley Currans, and a full team of Grand Officers. The individual units are termed “Consistories” and, in addition to Provinces throughout the United Kingdom, there are Districts in Asia, the Caribbean, India and Spain.

A close link is maintained with the Order of the Secret Monitor as it is a requirement of admission to the Scarlet Cord that candidates must be Princes in the Order of the Secret Monitor. There are six “Grades” in the Order, each with its own impressive ceremony but the regalia is fairly simple and therefore relatively inexpensive.

The Province of Middlesex currently has three Consistories. The first, Fraternal Union Consistory No 60 TI, was consecrated on 29th June 2010 which, being before the Order itself was inaugurated, accords it “Time Immemorial” status. The second, Northwick Circle Consistory No. 97, and the third, Middlesex Consistory No. 105 were consecrated in 2014 and 2015 respectively. As every Province must have a minimum of three Consistories, the creation of the third unit allowed Middlesex to progress from being an “Inspectorate” to the full status of a Province.

The Provincial Grand Summus, R.Dist.Comp. Trevor P. Dutt, RD, is also the Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler for the OSM Province of Middlesex.
