ActivityFriendly Societies were primarily mutual benefit societies, but sometimes arranged recreational facilities for their members. The Rose of Grange Lodge of Free Gardeners Friendly Society was established in 1866, its registered office being later established in Bridgeness, West Lothian. The objectives of the society were, “to raise a fund, in the first place, for the support of its members in case of sickness or disability…in the second place, for assisting to defray the expense of the funerals of the Members of the Society.” Members were to be Protestant, of good moral character, and between the ages of 16 and 40. Entry money on a sliding scale and an annual fee were levied from members. Its instrument of dissolution was registered by the Friendly Societies' Registrar on 31 December 1908, there being insufficient funds to meet expected claims if the Society continued.
