Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes Grand Lodge of England

The Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes is a charitable, non-political organisation of  mutually supportive, like-minded people active, not only in their local community, but all levels of society seeking to inspire members to commit to a peaceful and meaningful way of life.

We Are The Grand Lodge

Originating in the 1820’s  the Order readily took its place in the community by establishing orphanages and accepting its responsibilities towards providing support and care for members and taking part in the community at large.
There are three main levels within the Order.

There are three levels within the Order:

The Minor Lodge

All members of the Order will be members of one or more minor lodge, which focuses on the support and care of the community local to it, most meet weekly, though some meed fortnightly or even monthly.

The Provincial Grand Lodge

Provincial Grand Lodges administers a collection of minor lodges known as a province.

The Grand Lodge

The Grand Lodge is made up of delegates from the Provincial Grand Lodges and administers the the Order nationally.


Membership is for life and members can be as active as they wish at whichever level they choose. All that is required is that you are a member of a Lodge.
