    What is the relationship between the United Grand Lodge of England and The Rosicrucian Society of England (Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia) and Freemasonry in general and Rosicrucianism?

    Their relationship to most of the masonic world is basicly that you can join if your GL is in amity with UGLE, no more no less.
    As to their relationship with other rosocrucian orders they are considerd fine, members of the society spawned diffrent esoteric orders.

    A brother said it best "Freemasonry is a best of collection of diffrent esoteric teachings".

    There are elements of rosocrucian,hermetic, theosopic (Böhme and not Blavatsky), religion, historical events etc. in Freemasonry and the elements are mixed around depending on wich ritual is being used. Freemasonry in itself is not just hermetic or rosocrucian but is rather a mixture.

    True. I am very much into the esoteric side of Masonry.

    In common with other Appendant Orders or bodies there is no actual "relationship" between them other than Freemasons under the UGLE are not prevented from joining them.

    SocRos as it is known is not actually a Masonic organisation, it also should not be confused with the Rosicrucian Order (AMORC). SocRos quite openly declares that it is not Masonic in nature and its only link is that its Founders were Freemasons and only Master Masons who have an interest in it may be invited to join.

    You can find info on its website here: https://www.sria.uk.com/home/

    You said 'invited to join'. I was under the impression SRIA you didn't need invite, unlike SRICF where you do need an invite.

    No invitation is needed to join SRIA. You can actully apply to join. You just have to be a trinitarian MM that belongs to a GL in amity with UGLE.

    Just like Freemasonry you ask and they’ll decide.
