In Memoriam – Elizabeth Anderton-Fox

We are sad to announce that Elizabeth Anderton-Fox has died recently following a stay in hospital.

Many SOL Students owe a great deal to Elizabeth Anderton-Fox, who worked as a senior supervisor in the SOL School for decades.

She and her husband, John Fox, became involved in the school in the 1980s and early 1990s, attending workshops held by Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki, and they also studied the SOL Practical Course on the Mystical Qabalah by W.E. Butler. Both John and Elizabeth worked as SOL supervisors for many years.

John and Elizabeth taught workshops through their organisation called Sirius, and both taught alongside Dolores Ashcroft Nowicki on several occasions and were dear friends of Dolores’.

Dolores and Elizabeth successfully taught a series of workshops together in the UK, and the USA called Ritual with Purpose that ran for many years.

Both Elizabeth and John were involved in SOL Lodges too, particularly Lodge Sothis in Manchester; they were both involved in AMORC, the founding and organisation of the British Martinist Order, and The Order Militia Crucifera Evangelica (OMCE) too and were dedicated Rosicrucians.

Elizabeth also worked in Co-Masonry and often attended meetings in London and elsewhere in the country in connection with that work which she loved.

Elizabeth supervised the current Director of Studies of the SOL, Dr Steven Critchley, through the Butler Course, initiated him to 1st degree in the SOL and taught him ceremonial magic techniques in Lodge Sothis of which he was a member for several years,

Please light passing candles in remembrance of Elizabeth, who dedicated her life to the Great Work in many ways and helped many on the path in the light of truth with kindness and integrity.

Elizabeth’s Funeral is being held on Thursday, 16th March, and anyone wishing to attend can contact Steven Critchley for further details.
