Vulcan lodge No.4382 was consecrated in 1921 and meets, on the fourth Friday of each month from October to May, i.e., 9 meetings per year including the Installation ceremony which is in April.
The naming of this new lodge took up a lot of time. Three names were suggested – Carbon, Engineering and Tubal Cain (being the first Artificer of Metals) but no decision was made. At the next meeting of the founder members of the Lodge on 10th October 1921, the name “VULCAN ” was suggested as it referred to the ‘God of Fire and Metalworking’. This was thought to be very appropriate for a lodge, which was primarily intended for members engaged in the engineering industries and therefore the name was adopted.
