The Commercial Lodge No.1391 was consecrated on 1st April 1872. Its first W.M. was a Commercial Traveller, and the other eleven petitioners included four Manufacturers, a Railway Inspector, a Station Master, a Poor Law Auditor, an Artist, a Theatre Lessee, a Clerk in Holy Orders and a Surgeon.
The main object of the Lodge was to provide a centre and bond of Union for commercial men, resident in or frequenting Leicester. In the first year they held a further nineteen meetings and the popularity of Freemasonry and The Commercial Lodge in those days is further evidenced by the election of twelve Brethren as Joining Members and nineteen gentlemen as Candidates for Initiation. Whilst as an old Lodge it contributed significantly to Freemasonry in the Province.
