City Livery Companies

London’s 110 livery companies, the oldest of which trace their history back to medieval times, are today groups of men and women committed to charitable giving for schools, crafts, training, almshouses and much more besides.

Some 40 still have their own Hall and there are 26,000 liverymen and 15,500 freemen overall. It is estimated that City Livery Companies give some £40m a year to charitable causes and St Paul’s has been very fortunate to have enjoyed the support of City livery companies, in some cases over many hundreds of years.

The Chapter of St Paul’s are most grateful to the following livery companies who, in addition to helping the United Guilds Trustees to cover the costs of the annual United Guilds service, have generously supported the Cathedral since the last service:
Apothecaries, Armourers & Brasiers, Arts Scholars, Bakers, Barbers, Brewers, Builders Merchants, Butchers, Carmen, Carpenters, Chartered Secretaries & Administrators, Clockmakers, *Clothworkers, Coachmakers & Coach Harness Makers, Cooks, Coopers, Cordwainers, Curriers, Cutlers, Distillers, *Drapers, Dyers, Fan Makers, Feltmakers, Firefighters, *Fishmongers, *Founders, *Girdlers, Glass Sellers, *Glovers, *Gold & Silver Wyre Drawers, *Goldsmiths, *Grocers, Haberdashers, Innholders, **Ironmongers, *Leathersellers, Lightmongers, Marketors, Masons, *Mercers, Merchant Taylors, *Musicians, *Needlemakers, Parish Clerks, *Pattenmakers, Pewterers, *Plaisterers, Plumbers, Saddlers, Salters, *Scriveners, Stationers & Newspaper Makers, *Tallow Chandlers, Tin Plate Workers, Tobacco Pipe Makers, Turners, Tylers & Bricklayers, Vintners, Wax Chandlers, Weavers, Woolmen. *Indicates support of a choristership, two more of which are also supported by the Order of the British Empire, two by Morden College, and one each by the United Guilds Trust, the Imperial Society of Knights Bachelor, the Friends of St Paul’s Cathedral and Mark Pigott KBE
