The Passing of Bro. W. Grant Marshall P.M. - 2014


It is our very sad duty to report the Passing of Past Master Bro. W. Grant Marshall.  

Bro. Grant joined Lodge St John Corstorphine No.788 in 1960 and became Master of the Lodge in 1968 and again in 1985.  




Bro. Grant can be seen in this picture after he was awarded his 50 year Diploma in 2010 by Bro Calum Stewart P.M.  He always attended meetings regularly and joined the team of special visits whenever he could.

Bro. W. Grant Marshall P.M. will be sadly missed by all at Lodge St John Corstorphine No.788.


There will be a service at Mortonhall Crematorium on Friday 13th June 2014 at 10am where all will be welcome to pay their last respects.


50 Year Diploma - Bro. George N. Bremner P.M.


Bro. George N. Bremner P.M - s


Bro. George N. Bremner P.M. was awarded his 50 year diploma by Provinical Depute Grand Master Bro. Thomas Constable Smith on 27th February 2014 - which was actually 50 years to the day since Bro. George was initiated into the Craft in 1964.

Bro. George has been Master of the Lodge on three occasions for a total of four years.  1974 - 1975, 1995 - 1996 and more recently in 2007 - 2009.  As well as being Master of Lodge St John Corstorphine, he has also attained the high rank of Provincial Grand Senior Warden in The Provincial Grand Lodge of Midlothian.

Despite having already given 50 years service to the Lodge, Bro. George still carries out the duties of Director of Ceremonies and brings his own personality and sense of humour to the fore.
