Anyone got any link with either Alexander Fowler or his father William Fowler?  Both were schoolmasters, William and his family lived at Culbokie School House and once grown up himself, Alexander lived with his wife Margaret at Tarradale School.  Alexander Fowler was born 1881 and died in 1965.  On his grave stone it reads Alexander Fowler M.B.E.  J.P.  F.E.I.S. 

The MBE is obvious - is there any way of seeing records about people that have been awarded an MBE?

The JP I have took to mean Justice of the Peace.

FEIS - i'm not so certain.  A search of acronyms found - Fellow of the Educational Industry of Scotland.  As far as I knew the EIS is the Educational Insititute of Scotland, but it may have changed??  If it is the case, what makes you a 'fellow' of something?

Thanks  :)
