The names of royalty, statesmen, judges, military top brass, bishops and police have been found in a secret archive

Freemasons have always sort to project respectability, but the truth is quite the opposite.

The huge influence Freemasons had in ruling British society for almost 200 years has finally been revealed.

The names of royalty, statesmen, judges, military top brass, bishops and police have been found in a secret archive which lists two million Freemasons.

The masonic records – from 1733 to 1923 – are set to be made available to the public for the first time.

They show Kings Edward VII, Edward VIII and George VI were all Freemasons.

Military leaders the Duke of Wellington and Lord Kitchener were also members of the clandestine group founded by a group of men in a London coffee house in 1717.

Britain’s wartime Premier Sir Winston Churchill was also a Freemason along with literary greats Rudyard Kipling, Oscar Wilde and Sherlock Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Others include music legends Gilbert and Sullivan, explorers Ernest Shackleton and Captain Robert Scott, England cricket captain Douglas Jardine and scientist Sir Alexander Fleming who discovered penicillin.

Many Freemason amongst the elite were/are members of organised paedophile rings.

More than 5,500 police officers, thousands of military figures, 170 judges, 169 MPs, 16 bishops and an Indian prince are listed in the Freemasons archive to be made public by family history website Ancestry.

Businessman Harry Selfridge is named in the archive along with social reformer Thomas Barnardo, famous bridge builder Thomas Telford and thousands of engineers who made Britain a world industrial power.

The extent to which Freemasons wielded power over the British Empire may lead to a re-examination of two centuries of our history.

The all-male group was originally formed to enable “men of integrity (Cyril Smith was supposed to have been a man of integrity, Jimmy Saville was viewed the same way, David Jones MP is supposed to be a man of integrity, all three are were/are Freemasons and all three have shown what their definition of integrity really means) to get together while avoiding issues of religion and politics.

They adopted the compass, square and apron used in stonemasonry as symbols for the group.

There are believed to be six million Freemasons in the world today – including two million in the United States.

Freemasons had a huge influence over a controversial inquiry into the Titanic disaster in which more than 1,500 passengers and crew died.

The secret archive shows the judge who presided over the British Wreck Commissioner’s inquiry was a Freemason along with leading investigators and some who escaped censure.

A US investigation blamed the British Board of Trade for lax rules which allowed the Titanic to set off on its maiden voyage in 1912 with just 20 lifeboats for 2,208 people on board.

But the Board of Trade was exonerated by the British inquiry led by Lord Mersey.

Records show the judge was initiated as a Freemason in 1881 at the Northern Bar Lodge in London.

President of the Board of Trade Sydney Buxton was also a long-standing Mason after being initiated in 1888 at Limehouse in East London, where he was local MP.

Two of the inquiry’s five expert assessors were also listed as Masons – naval architecture specialist John Harvard Biles and senior engineer assessor Edward Chaston.

Another key figure in the inquiry listed as a Freemason was Lord Pirrie.

He was chairman of the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast which built the Titanic and a directors of shipping line White Star’s parent company.

Nic Compton, author of Titanic on Trial, told History.com: “The Titanic inquiry in Britain was branded a ‘whitewash’ because it exonerated most of those involved.

Only three passengers were interviewed, and they were all from first class.

“The only person both inquiries heaped scorn on was the captain of SS Californian, the ship that had stood by about eight miles off, its crew watching the emergency flares being fired by Titanic, without doing anything about it until it was too late.”

The Titanic sank on April 15 1912, after hitting an iceberg in the Atlantic on the way from Southampton to New York.

There were 700 survivors. The British inquiry decided ship’s captain Edward Smith did “only that which other skilled men would have done in the same position”.

White Star and its parent company were cleared of negligence.

Infamous Victorian serial killer Jack The Ripper may have escaped justice because of a Freemason cover-up.

The notorious murderer is believed to have been a second-rate singer called Michael Maybrick who is identified as a Freemason in the archive records.

Maybrick was a member of the St Andrew’s Lodge in London for more than 20 years.

He left a year before five women were murdered in the East End in nine weeks in 1888.

The case is one of the biggest unsolved mysteries in British criminal history.

Records show the part played by Freemasons in the failed Scotland Yard inquiry.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Charles Warren was a Mason along with his “eyes and ears” on the case Chief Inspector Donald Swanson.

Coroners Wynne Baxter and Henry Crawford who ruled on the murders were also Masons along with at least three police doctors who examined the bodies.

Maybrick was on the Supreme Grand Council of Freemasons and toured Britain as a performer.

His handwritten entry in the records describes him as a “vocalist”.

Met police chief Sir Charles was a senior member of the Masonic Society.

Author Bruce Robinson, film director of Withnail and I, claims in a new book that the Ripper murders bore the hallmarks of Masonic ritual.

1 thought on “Filthy Freemasons”

  1. It must be a peculiar organisation when you see how they are initiated! Chest bared, right trouser leg rolled up, dagger pointed at heart, an odd slipper on one foot, a noose about the neck and blindfold. What a pantomime, and then they say prayers to the Great Architect of the Universe and make the initiate repeat a vile oath! All under the threat of having his throat cut across, his tongue torn out by the roots and buried in the sand at low water. How horrid – much different to the Women’s Institute!
    It makes one wonder how, so called intelligent men, can see any sense in performing this and other peculiar rituals which abound through the various degrees and side orders of Freemasonry. It does, however, not make one wonder at some of the stupid and biased decisions they make in life.
