All Masonic Grand Lodges in the World -
 except those in the United States

All Masonic Grand Lodges in the United States are listed at 

Please note:  The purpose of this webpage is to attempt to list every Masonic Grand Lodge in each country in the world.  Grand Lodges that are or might be considered regular, irregular, clandestine, non-clandestine, recognized, not recognized, caucasian, black, male, female, mixed, large, small, tiny, etc., are all listed, just so we all can be aware of which Grand Lodges exist.  If anyone knows of any Masonic Grand Lodges that exist anyone in the world that are not included on this chart, please let me know and I will be happy to include them.

Some of the information on this chart comes from the excellent book, Freemasonry Universal, Volume I - The Americas, by Kent Henderson & Tony Pope, published by Global Masonic Publications in Australia.  The numbers in the right column of some of the charts on this webpage refer to the number of U.S. "mainstream" Grand Lodges that recognize that particular Grand Lodge.  The "Pantagraph" referred to in some of the charts refers to the pamphlet, List of Lodges - Masonic, published each year by that publisher, containing the names of many Grand Lodges in the world and the lodges chartered by each.

Please note that there are many lodges and Masons in countries that do not have their own Grand Lodges. For example, the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) has chartered many lodges in such countries, and the members of those lodges are Masons under the UGLE even though they live in countries other than England.

If any of the information on this chart is not correct or if you know of additional information that should be included, please send me email by clicking on: paulb'at'
