As part of our series on the Deceased Brethren of Temple Lodge, No.33, here is a page on George Robinson Elliott (16 November 1873 – 1921)

At present we do not know a lot about George Robinson Elliott.

Temple Lodge, No.33 records show that George R. Elliott, age 42, occupation: Mill Manager, made a Petition for Initiation which was received at the Regular Lodge meeting of 14 September 1914 and the following Investigating Committee appointed:  Wor. Bros. William Dwyer and John H. Peterson and Bro. George H. Savage.

His application was balloted on and he was duly elected a member of Temple Lodge, No. 33 by Initiation.

He served as Junior Warden of Temple Lodge, No.33 in 1920 and Senior Warden in 1921. He would likely have been Worshipful Master of the Lodge in 1922 had he not died in 1921.

Here is the information we have uncovered so far about George Robinson Elliott. We will post more information on as we discover it.
