The statutes of the order state (statute 32(2)) The letters specified ... may be used ... but admission or promotion to any Grade of the Order ... shall not confer any rank, style, title, dignity, appellation or social precedence whatsoever.

The Grades of the Order of St John are:

Grade I Bailiffs or Dames Grand Cross (GCStJ)
Grade II Knights or Dames of Justice or Grace (KStJ or DStJ)
Grade III (a) Chaplains (ChStJ)
Grade III (b) Commanders (Brothers or Sisters) (CStJ)

Note 1: Use of Cantuar for Kent is rare and risks confusion with both Lambeth degrees and the University of Canterbury, NZ. The Latin name for Kent is Cantium (hence Cantiensis) which would give Cant (also used by the University of Canterbury, NZ); the University of Kent was originally the University of Kent at Canterbury.

Note 2: Awarded to undergraduates who receive a BEng or MEng degree from a programme within the City and Guilds College-Imperial College London.

Fellowship or membership of learned societies, academies or professional institutions[edit]

These are generally placed in the order learned societies, Royal academicians, professional institutes. According to Debrett's, within learned societies: "There is no recognised order for placing these letters. In practice, where one society is indisputably of greater importance than another the letters are usually placed in that order."[39][N 10] Similarly, for professional institutions: "[T]here is no recognised order for placing qualifications awarded by different bodies, a recipient usually places these letters on headed paper, business cards, etc, in order of importance to his particular profession."[41] It should also be noted that there is no clear distinction between a learned society and a professional institute. With regard to Royal Academicians, Debrett's says: "Although Royal Academicians come second in this list, it is not suggested that they yield in precedence to fellows of learned societies. In practice the two lists do not coincide."[42] All societies, institutions, etc. are therefore listed alphabetically by substantive name,[N 11] rather than attempting to establish an order of precedence.

Some post-nominals (and associated professional titles) are protected as "Professions Regulated by Professional Bodies Incorporated by Royal Charter" under the European professional qualification directives.[43] These are indicated with an asterisk (e.g. CEng*).

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The post-nominal Kt for a knight bachelor is only used by those who hold a higher title which obscures their "Sir" (such as a peerage), those who hold multiple knighthoods (so as to clarify which they hold) or clergymen who do not by custom use the title "Sir".
  2. ^ Esquire (or Esq as a suffix) is now commonly used in the UK in place of the prefix Mr in formal address,[citation needed] according to the "Dictionary of Genealogy" it has no real meaning; according to Buckingham Palace it is an entitlement of all British-born men. In the US, it has in many places been assumed by lawyers, but the profession has not been awarded the title by any level of government or authority, and therefore anyone may use it. Naval officers, for example, have been traditionally referred to as such in formal correspondence.
  3. ^ The letters "PC" are normally only used to identify members of the Privy Council who are peers. The distinction is needed because peers already hold a prefix ("Rt Hon" or higher) even when they are not Privy Counsellors, while the same cannot be said of non-peers.[2] However if the prefix "The Right Honourable" is ommitted before a non-peer's name then the post-nominal letters "PC" may be used to identify a persons membership of the Privy Council.[3]
  4. ^ a b King's Counsel is used during the reign of a king, Queen's Counsel during the reign of a queen
  5. ^ "Member of Parliament" is used in the UK and other Commonwealth nations to describe members of the lower house of Parliament only. In the UK, members of the House of Commons are described Members of Parliament, but members of the House of Lords are not.
  6. ^ When the London Assembly was first established in 2000 there was some debate over its members' post-nominal. The most commonly used were "AM", "GLA", "MLA" and "GLAM". GLA is a short form of Greater London Authority, of which the London Assembly is part. A consensus now appears to have grown up around the use of AM.
  7. ^ The exact post-nominals for degrees vary between courses and between universities, common ones are shown here, ordered according to the Framework for Higher Education Qualifications.[7]
  8. ^ There are too many religious institutes, learned societies, royal academies, and professional institutions to be listed. One example is provided in each case; the format shown should be followed for other organisations, except that the initials of the organisation should be substituted.
  9. ^ Debrett's previously added that: "Strictly speaking, [Learned Societies] should be arranged according to date of foundation or incorporation of the societies concerned, but some hold that those with a Royal Charter should take precedence."[40] This has been deleted from the current advice.
  10. ^ I.e. by what they are a society or institute of or for, e.g. Aeronautical for the Royal Aeronautical Society. Bodies without a substantive name, such as the Royal Society, are listed at the top, ordered by their full names.
  11. ^ While based outside the UK, the RIA is an all-Ireland learned body covering Northern Ireland
  12. ^ Used only within the society
  13. ^ Fellows who were fellows of both the Institute of Actuaries and the Faculty of Actuaries prior to their merger may continue to use both FIA and FFA
  14. ^ Note the President uses the statement "President, RIBA" but does not gain specific post-nominals
  15. ^ May be used in correspondence, etc., but not in screen credits
  16. ^ Issued jointly with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and used alongside FCMA or ACMA by CIMA members
  17. ^ According to Debretts, listed after fellowships of learned societies, royal academicians, and memberships of professional bodies.
  18. ^ In the armed forces, two or more branches may have officers with the same or similar titles, such as "Captain," which is a rank in the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Marines. To differentiate between the branches, post-nominals such as "RN" are used. However, such post-nominals are not used for the higher positions, since the higher officers are differently-titled in each branch.
  19. ^ a b c "RN" or "RNR" is used for officers with the rank of Captain or below.
  20. ^ In the Army, the initials of the regiment or corps of the officer are used as post-nominals. Those above the rank of Lieutenant Colonel have their former regiment or corps preceded by the word 'Late'
  21. ^ a b "RAF" or "RAFVR" technically should be used for officers with the rank of Air Chief Marshal and below, though, in practice, it is used for officers with the rank of Wing Commander and below.
  22. ^ The title of "1st Level Registered Nurse" is comparable to the old titles of RGN, RMN etc. The title of "2nd Level Registered Nurse" refers to those previously called Enrolled Nurses. The post-nominal letters for 1st Level Registered Nurses can be used interchangeably but not together i.e. either Your Name, RN1 or Your Name, RNA not Your Name, RN1, RNA
