The names of candidates under consideration for admission to the Order by the Grand Council will appear here for one month.

There are three stages within the admission process:-
Stage 1 - Initial acceptance by the Grand Council - gazetting.
Stage 2 - Final review. After a month the Grand Council review the application again and any representations made to the Director of Membership.
After final review and approval, candidates will be informed by email of the outcome by the Director of Membership.
Stage 3 - Full admission to the order with entitlements.
Rank and entitlements can only be used:-
           a) on receipt of an acceptance email to join the Order from the candidate to the Director of Membership at the rank offered and
           b) on receipt of their oblation relevant to the rank offered.
Once Stage 3 has been met, the new member's name will be removed from the gazette page and they will be sent the Order's joining pack and associated documentation relevant to their rank.
Prior to investiture by the Grand Prior at a formal ceremony, Knights will be a Knight Expectant and Dames will be a Dame Expectant.
