Alexander William Black
Originally trained as a lawyer, he was elected at the 1900 general election as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Banffshire, and was re-elected in 1906. However he died in December that year from injuries received in a railway accident at Elliot Junction, forcing a by-election early in 1907.
He is buried near his home, in the north section of Dean Cemetery in Edinburgh towards the south-west corner of the north section. He is buried with his wife Ellinor (1885-1918), some 26 years his junior.
