据英国共济会官网报道:
“英国皇家共济会员2006年回访上海共济会堂No.1(现北京西路1624号上海医学会),会见了上海医学会的副会长朱炎苗。2003年在香港共济会堂,他们已经和朱会长见面并安排了此次的行程。
    2006年英国共济会皇家成员苏塞克斯No.501会社访问上海
    2006年3月24日皇家苏塞克斯会社501选委会的委员开始访问上海,访问团包括爱尔兰和苏格兰礼仪的成员、女士们以及501 EC弟兄的WM -埃里克指挥官埃德蒙森、马克·萨瑟兰安排的兄弟马克萨瑟兰。

    三天的活动计划主要是访问我们前上海共济会大厅和扩展霍尔德友谊之手于事实上的占有者。
    同时,从历史的方面,争取在最大程度上使得建筑在翻新中保持原貌。
    其次,为满足上海广场和指南针俱乐部挂靠在大旅馆的非正式成员的F&中国的弟兄。
    第三,参观外滩附近的前主教大教堂。石匠们特别渴望进入大教堂试图寻找基石和题词。前几年在安全局控制下教堂和入口拒绝外人进入。

    这已经是石匠们对上海的第三次访问,近年来我们一直试图发现更多关于共济会在中国的历史传统。

Royal Sussex Lodge No. 501 EC Visit Shanghai 2006.
On 24 March 2006 members of Royal Sussex Lodge No.501 EC initiated a visit to Shanghai together with 
ladies and members of the Irish & Scottish constitutions. The motley crew was led by the WM of 501 EC Bro. 
Eric ‘Commander’ Edmondson, and arranged by W. Bro. Mark Sutherland. The main event in the three day 
programme was a visit to our former Shanghai Masonic Hall and to extend the hand of friendship to the hall de 
facto occupiers. Also from the historical aspect to garner the extent the building had been renovated or 
modified since earlier visits. 
Secondly, to meet informally members of the Shanghai Square & Compass Club affiliated to The Grand Lodge 
of F&AM of China .
Thirdly, to visit the former Episcopal Cathedral near the Bund. The writer was particular keen to enter the 
cathedral having failed to do so on two earlier attempts to identify the foundation stone and inscription. For 
some years the cathedral was under the control of the Security Bureau and entry was denied to outsiders. 
This was the writer’s third visit to Shanghai in recent times to try and discover more about our long Masonic 
heritage in China.
The Shanghai Masonic Hall 1931
This former 1931 Masonic Hall is the fourth 
Masonic hall constructed in Shanghai (see left). 
The first was constructed in Nanking Road in 
1835. The second in Canton Road in 1861. The 
third and more imposing hall was built in 1865 on 
30 The Bund opposite the public gardens until the 
hall’s demolition in 1928. See right the 1931 
Masonic Hall Beijing Road West today. 
 One can see that an additional floor has been added and the trees have reached maturity
On our arrival at the former Masonic Hall at 1623 Beijing Road West (formerly Avenue Road) our group 
was courteously greeted by Dr. Zhu Yan-miao the Vice-President & Secretary-General and his colleagues of 
the Chinese Medical Association Shanghai Branch (CMASB) who have been the de facto occupiers since 
1957. In 2003 I met Dr. Zhu in Hong Kong over lunch when he was given a personal tour of our Masonic 
Centre in Hong Kong. After the formal courtesies we were permitted to look over the building at will. The staff 
kindly lifted the hidden sunken board in the cavity built into the floor formerly used by the Scottish brethren in 
their Chapter ceremonies. The shallow cavity was clearly shown on the original plans. The cover over the 
cavity was lifted on an earlier visit by a group of the DGL of HK & FE and the board exposed only after some 
difficulty and for the first time in many years. At that time the inscribed letters on the board probably had not 
been revealed since the mid 1950's when the Light of Freemasonry spluttered out on China mainland and 
finally extinguished! 
On a previous occasion the wooden honour boards situated on the ground floor on which the names of the 
Masters of the lodges would have been depicted were varnished over and the names totally indecipherable. 
On this occasion the thick varnish of three of the boards had been cleaned so that one was able to partially 
decipher some of the names. From archives it was able to determine the lodges from the uncovered names of 
the Masters of the lodges on the boards i.e. Doric Lodge No. 1433 EC warranted in 1873 and Tuscan Lodge 
No.1027 EC warranted in1874 and St. George's Lodge No. 4575 EC warranted in 1923.
