Alexina Calvert (née McWilliam; 13 August 1898 – 19 September 2008) was a British supercentenarian who was the oldest living person in Scotland at the time of her death.

Alexina was born and raised in Scotland and married her husband Nicholas in 1921. Her husband, who was originally from Dumfriesshire, became a postmaster in Inverness, then the couple moved to take over the post office in Annan in 1946. Nicholas died in 1973.

Calvert celebrated her 110th birthday in 2008; visitors left gifts of flowers and chocolate, and Calvert's 85-year-old daughter was also present. She died on 19 September 2008 just over a month after her 110th birthday.[1]
