It is with great sadness I must inform you of the passing to the Grand lodge above of Worshipful Brother & E Companion Roger Charles Smith PPrGStB on 29th September 2023 (aged 81).
W. Bro Roger was an excellent ritualist, regularly attended meetings even up to this year’s summer break. He will be sorely missed by all the brethren that knew him.
It is my honour to remind you of his long and full masonic career.
