If he died from 1855 onwards - his parents names plus mothers maiden name will be on his death cert

Have you looked at the early census? There is for example this entry from 1841:

James Whitecross 45 Linen Hand Loom Weaver
Elspeth Whitecross 45
Joseph Whitecross 15 Linen Hand Loom Weaver
Thomas Whitecross 15 Linen Hand Loom Weaver        
Anna Whitecross 13 Flax Spinner
William Whitecross 10
Mary Whitecross 7

Address: Southesk Str, Montrose, Angus

Ages in 1841 are normally rounded to the nearest 5 years for everyone over 15 years old.

There is this 1841 entry for Angus but it was Montrose - not Kirriemuir but he's the right age and later censuses don't show any other Thomas Whitecross in that age range

South Esk Street - all b Angus

James Whitecross 45 Linen hand loom weaver
Elspeth  45
Joseph  15
Thomas  15
Anna  13
Mary     7
William  10
Montrose ED 9 Page 17 Line 840

In 1851 he is aged 25 and appears to be married to a Lilly b 1820 Benvir and suspect she was nee Hutchenson as there is a 5yr old Douglas Hutchenson b Benvir with them.  They are lodgers so no relationship shown

Liff and Benvie ED 95 Page 16 Line 5

Still alive in 1861 but seems to be widowed
