W Bro Terence Frank ‘Terry‘ Cole

Dear Brethren,

It is with great sadness that I must inform you of the passing to the Grand lodge above of Worshipful Brother and Companion Terence (Terry) Frank Cole on Tuesday 30th of May 2023 (74)

Worshipful Brother Terry was initiated on the 16th of February 1999 into Peterborough and Counties Lodge L2996, held most offices and was Master in 2008. Terry became a joining member of St Johns Lodge L8817 in 2001, master in 2007 and 2013. Also, a joining member of Richard Sandbach Lodge of Research L9600 Northants & Hunts, Master in 2009. And in 2022 a founder member of Fundamentals Lodge L10002 in Cambridgeshire. In Royal Arch Chapter was exalted into St Peters Chapter C442, Northants & Hunts on 17th September 2001.

W. Bro Terry was promoted to the rank of Past provincial Junior Grand Deacon in Bedfordshire, followed by Provincial Assistant Grand Director of Ceremonies, Northampton & Huntingdon in 2014.

Resigned from St John’s lodge in 2016, mainly because of moving out of the area to Peterborough. I believe he still regularly stayed connected with St Johns members, and occasional making the journey to visit the lodge. He sadly had kidney disease and was on dialysis, he also bravely bore other serious ailments, but tragically it was sepsis that finally took him to the Grand Lodge above.

His funeral will be held on the 24th of June at mid-day 12.00 o’clock at the crematorium Peterborough then on to the Masonic centre Peterborough.

W. Bro Terry’s funeral details can be found on the memory page that his daughter has created for him and which can be accessed via: https://terry-cole.muchloved.com

  1. I am sure that you will join with me in offering our sincere condolences to his family at this very sad time, I am hoping to send a condolences card to Terry’s next of kin on behalf the Provincial Grand Master, executive and Brethren of the province.

Requiescet in pace 

Yours sincerely and fraternally

Mike Fitz-GeraldProvincial Grand Almoner
