Herbert (Bert) Naylor, our First Principal, welcomes you to the William de Warenne Royal Arch Chapter part of the Website.


 I hope, that with your input we can bring you more information about the Chapter and its members. If you have anything you would like to see on this page please click here.

The Chapter was consecrated on 4th December 1947 by The Very Rev. A.T.A. Naylor, ME Third Grand Principal, and celebrated its 200th meeting on 8th December 2009 with a menu identical to 1947. E Comp Norman Stenning gave a very entertaining talk about some of the past first principals of the Chapter and an honours board was presented (by E Comp Paul Gosling) with all 62 First Principals names on it.

The Founding 1st Principal, George Roberts, was also the founding Master of the William de Warenne Lodge. The other Principals were Arthur Lyne (who was a founding Warden of the lodge) and Horace Inskeep.
