The Manchester Association for Masonic Research was founded in 1909 both to encourage research into the subject of Freemasonry and to enable its members to become more knowledgeable through attending meetings and receiving the annual Transactions.
It is based in Manchester and while its membership is drawn mainly from the
surrounding counties it does have a wider membership both across the UK and abroad.
MAMR is associated with the Lodge of Silent Temple No. 126, warranted in 1762. MAMR members can apply to become members of this body. Silent Temple provides an appropriate forum in which to explore and practise Masonic education in this old lodge through ritual. Installation of the Master takes place each January. Meetings offer the tyled atmosphere so necessary for inculcating the priceless Masonic culture of progressive respectful regularity.
