Notify A Recent Passing
Subscribe to be advised of Passings
The table below shows summary information of recent Passings. If you would like to view the full database, including funeral time and venue information click here to be taken to the database page.
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.
