Order of the Allied Masonic Degrees

The Grand Council of the Allied Masonic Degrees was formed in 1879 to bring under its direction all lodges of various orders who recognised no central authority and were not regulated by the other major governing bodies. Initially the degrees of Grand High Priest, St Lawrence the Martyr, the Red Cross of Babylon and Knights of Constantinople placed themselves under the control of this body and by 1897 the degrees of Grand Tilers of Solomon, one degree of the Secret Monitor and the Order of Holy Wisdom (Knight Templar Priest grades) had also been included. Eventually, however, in 1923 a Grand College of Holy Royal Arch Knight Templar Priests for England was erected at Newcastle and the Grand Council accordingly disclaimed control of this large group of degrees. Following this in 1931 the Grand Council of Allied Masonic Degrees agreed to cease working their single degree of the Secret Monitor.
Early 2000 the Grand Council had 134 Conclaves, most of the in Commonwealth countries and Hong Kong and three in Spain.
The order in the United States is more extensive. There, the Royal Ark Mariner's degree, the Secret Monitor and the Order of Eri are part of this rite. 
The British order has five degrees:
