Centenary History of the Aries Lodge of Mark Master Masons, No 669

W. Bro Michael J. P Holgate, P.A.G.D.C. is compiling a centenary history of The Aries Lodge of Mark Master Masons, No 669 and writes to ask if anyone can provide, or point him towards, any information to support his research.

He is particularly interested in:

  1.  Notable Masonic events in Bradford between December 1917 and the present day;
  2.  Information and photographs of rooms where Bradford Lodges met, particularly Connaught Rooms; The Masonic Hall, North Parade; The Talbot Hotel, Kirkgate; and The Masonic Hall, Westgate.
  3. Information on the lives (Masonic, private or public) of active members of Aries Lodge, including Sir Anthony Gadie, John Russell Rose, Canon William G McNeice, Clifford Machin Kershaw, and Leslie Beswick.

If anyone can help with information to assist his research it will be gratefully appreciated.
