Sir Kenneth Garnar Newton (1918–2008) served as the President of the Board of General Purposes of the United Grand Lodge of England, the governing body of Freemasonry in England and Wales, from 1986 to 1991. A number of initials follow his name in the title of the painting. ‘Bt’ refers to his title 'Baronet of Beckenham', which was first created for his grandfather. He was awarded an OBE (Order of the British Empire) in 1970, and the initials ‘TD’ stand for 'Territorial Decoration', recognising his long service in Territorial Army.
