Hi

Cannot find any records as such but did find this:-

The prescribed address was read with much feeling by Mr. G. P. Bagley (lodge treasurer) at the graveside.

Extracts From The Wellington Journal and Shrewsbury News 1908, relating to Broseley and District.

Hi Ann

Another snippet (from A History of the County of Shropshire: Volume 10) found on:
www.british-history.ac.uk/report.asp?compid=22876

"About 1793 there were six clubs or benefit societies in the parish each with c. 100 members.  (Footnote 77)  There were eight friendly societies in the parish in 1794, all still active in 1857; there was one other society in 1857, others having formed and disbanded meanwhile:  (Footnote 78)  in 1804 there had been a dozen societies with 1,003 members.  (Footnote 79)  The Oddfellows had a Rose of Sharon lodge in Broseley from 1823 until 1977.  (Footnote 80)"

If you are able to get to Shropshire, follow this up:
