Hammurabi L9606

Who are we?

Hammurabi Lodge No9606 was formed in 1996 and was originally situated at Old Elvet,
Durham City, but moved to Ferryhill in February 2018. The lodge is named after King
Hammurabi who ruled the Babylonian Empire from 1792 – 1750 BCE. One reason that
Hammurabi created his code of laws was because he was concerned with keeping order in his
kingdom. The word Memores Majorum loosely means “time honoured principals”. The
members of the lodge are predominately retired police officers so the lodge is aptly named.


What we do

Hammurabi Lodge is a group of Masons who like to meet with like-minded people and enjoy
other’s company. We are conscious of the local community and endeavour to support local
worthy causes when we can.

Why join us?

Originally membership was taken from police officers who were members of The
Northumbria, Durham and Teesside Constabulary’s. Over the years this has been relaxed and
we now take prospective members from the police and associated services, military, and
those who have been recommended by members.
