Shepherds Friendly started life as a sickness and benefits society, Ashton Unity, which was formed in Ashton Under Lynne Lancashire on Christmas Day in 1826. It was later renamed as the Loyal Order of Ancient Shepherds, “loyal” referring to the Crown and “shepherds” to the Nativity of Jesus. Its objects were “to relieve the sick, bury the dead, and assist each other in all cases of unavoidable distress, so far as in our power lies, and for the promotion of peace and goodwill towards the human race”.
