It is understood that most of the Founders of Totteridge Lodge were Air Raid Wardens who manned a Wardens post on Totteridge Common. Freemasonry must have been a topic of conversation. During the long hours of vigilance the seed was sown. The Lodge was consecrated by ‘The Canon’, VW Bro, Rev Canon F Halsey, Deputy Provincial Grand Master.

The original bye-laws reveal, ‘this Lodge is formed for the association and convenience of those residing in or closely connected with Totteridge’. Totteridge straddles the then border of Middlesex and Herts. The Lodge Crest depicts the Parish Church of St. Andrew in Totteridge Lane and is also used on past Masters’ Jewels.
