Dear Brethren,

It is with great sadness that I must inform you of the passing to the Grand lodge above of Worshipful Brother and Excellent Companion Lionel Stephen Braybrooke on Friday 30th of June 2023 (aged 87)

Brother Lionel was initiated on the 4th February 1983 into Cloisters lodge L7100 (Herts), becoming Master in 1994. Craft promotions in Herts, PPrAGDC in 2001, PPrDepGReg 2008 and PPrGReg 2016.

Companion Lionel was exalted on 22nd May 1997. He was a subscribing member of St Andrews Chapter C803 and was Treasurer and Charity Steward. Comp Lionel was also a member of Bedfordshire First Principles Chapter C7301. Promoted to PPrGSoj in 2014 followed by PPrGSwdB in 2019.

Bro Lionel was also a member of Knights Templar, Sir Richard De Montfichet Preceptory KT601 and Rose Croix.

W Bro Lionel had been diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer and I believe passed away very quickly and peacefully.

I am sure that you will join with me in offering our sincere condolences to the family at this very sad time. I shall be sending a condolences card to his wife Violet and the family on behalf of the Provincial Grand Master, executive and Brethren of the province.

The funeral will take place on Monday 17th July 2023 at 11:00 at North Herts Crematorium, Ickleford, Bedford Road, Holwell, Hitchin, SG5 3RT, followed by a celebration gathering at the Cloister’s Masonic centre.

Requiescet in pace 

Yours sincerely and fraternally

Mike Fitz-Gerald – Provincial Grand Almoner
