The Loyal Duke of Cambridge Lodge opened its doors in Cambridge in April 1867.
Fifteen members joined up on 28th May 1867 at a meeting in the Duke of Cambridge Hotel with William Henry Burbridge being the first Noble Grand. Andrew Robinson, the publican, became their first Honorary Member. By the end of the year they had 32 members who paid 1 shilling and 6 pence every four months into the Sickness and Funeral Fund. But there were only ten deaths up to 1900 and sickness was not that prevalent. The first case was of dysentery in 1872 for which 18 shillings was paid over seven days. The first death was Mary, the wife of William Morshead in October 1881, for which £12 was paid for the funeral. W W Jones was the first surgeon.
In September 1873 the Lodge paid their last rent account to the Duke of Cambridge Hotel and started paying interest on a £100 loan. Their new building was built in Duke Street and after a further three moves William White and his son built another hall for the Lodge in Empire Street.
The social aspect, for a predominantly single membership, must have been a draw card.
Ladies were admitted to the Lodge in 1926 with Nellie Hall being the first to be initiated. She was also in 1929, the first female Noble Grand.
The Lodge held its Centennial Celebration in 1967 and closed shortly after.

The Cambridge Museum has Minute books from 1873 to 1967, and the alphabetical list below is from the Sickness and Funeral Fund up to 1879. It gives name, age when enrolled, date of enrolment, whether single or married, wife's name and the date wife was added to the register.
