Districts and Groups

In addition to the Provinces in England and Wales, United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) has thirty-two active Districts and four Groups that are located overseas. Burma and Pakistan are dormant Districts as Freemasonry is banned in these countries.

A District Grand Lodge is the overseas equivalent of a Provincial Grand Lodge, but is headed by a District Grand Master. A Grand Inspector heads each of the four Groups of Lodges.

UGLE also has eight NUD (not under a District) Lodges spread across the world and these units report direct to London.

With a global membership across five continents, UGLE has more than 20,000 members belonging to its overseas Lodges.
