St. Thomas of Acon - Province of East Anglia


                                                                                                04b - ACON EAng - Prov Crests and Chapel Shields.pngThe Right Worthy Grand Preceptor for the Province of East Anglia, Sir Derek of Anfield and the Right Eminent Provincial Grand Prior Sir David of Epping Forest welcome you to the Home page of the Commemorative Order of St. Thomas of Acon in the Province of East Anglia. Our Province covers the geographical areas of Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and, hopefully, soon Malta! With the recent Consecration of the Dean John Colet Chapel Nº 128 there are currently nine Chapels within the Province with two more planned, for King's Lynn in Norfolk and Valletta in Malta.

The Order is a sovereign British Masonic Organisation. Membership, which is by invitation only, is restricted to those who are subscribing members of a Preceptory (or Commandery) in amity with the Great Priory of the United Religious, Military and Masonic Order of the Temple of England and Wales and Provinces Overseas (commonly referred to as the Knights Templar).

Our Charities raise monies for the support and upkeep of Canterbury Cathedral

The Province of East Anglia was constituted on Saturday the 20th day of September 2003 at Newmarket in Suffolk, as such we are the oldest Province in existence and I am privileged to be the sixth Grand Preceptor.

We hope that in visiting this site, either as a member or an interested visitor, that you will enjoy the content and gain a greater understanding of the Commemorative Order and our activities.


Yours in Humilitas et Caritas

Sir Derek (Cook) of Anfield

Right Worthy Grand Preceptor - East Anglia
