The City of London Ward Beadles Society
was founded in 1895 to formalise the Ward Beadle's social arrangements and –
“ ... to associate the Ward Beadles of The City of London for consideration of matters concerning their duties and responsibilities. (and also) To promote, enhance and protect the office of Ward Beadles.”
It seemed from the Minutes to have concerned itself also with ‘Friendly Society’ issues and organised social functions of its members, notably also a ‘Ladies Night’ annual function in Guildhall.
In 1921 it changed its status title from ‘society’ to ‘association’, possibly reflecting legal changes in usage of ‘society’. In May 2007 the word ‘association’ was dropped from the title head as we were being confused with the Livery Beadles (The City of London Beadles Guild).
The current Rules of the association are reproduced elsewhere on this website.
