Balfour Abercrombie was born in Paisley in 1879. He attended The Glasgow School of Art from September 1898 to 1903, during which time he worked as an apprentice to architect James Miller. In 1906 he commenced practice on his own account, and designed several villas, a church, a model farm, and an extension to a boarding school in Hampshire. In 1915 he joined the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders as a private, and died shortly after from severe injuries sustained during a shell attack. Also appears on the Glasgow Institute of Architects Roll of Honour (Associate).
