The Degree of Mark Master Mason is open to all Master Masons. The ceremony, in which he is ‘advanced’, can be said to comprise two degrees: the first part in which he is acknowledged as a Mark Man and then the second where he becomes a Mark Master Mason. The Mark referred to in its title takes its name from the Mark or Symbol with which the Stonemason identified his work and can still be found in many Cathedrals and important buildings.

Origins of MMM

THE ORIGINS OF MARK MASTER MASONS'

It is well known that operative stone masons indented
the stones they had prepared with special marks.
These were of two types, those that indicated the
orientation and position of the stone within the building
together with a personal mark to identify the mason
who prepared it.
