Applying to become a Freeman is the first level of membership of the Company. All Freemen then have the option of taking or applying for the Livery of the Company, which is the second level of membership. More information about the Livery can be found on the Join Us page. Any Freeman wishing to take the Livery must first become a Freeman of the City of London by redemption through Guildhall.
