Barry Whitehead of Todmorden, Lancs
« on: Friday 04 January 19 01:02 GMT (UK) »
Hi folks,

I wonder if someone can assist me with this man. He was killed 1 July 1944 while flying with the RAF.

From the CWGC I have nothing as no family or hometown is given. https://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/casualty/2321052/whitehead,-barry/

But from a document found in the file of the Canadian airman in this crew I have his next of kin as " (mother) Mrs. W. Whitehead, 47 Halifax Road, Todmorden, Lancs"

Can anybody tell me about Sgt Barry Whitehead and his family? *Spoiler Alert* A fellow crewman of Sgt Whitehead's was also from Lancs so a second post will go up for him.

Many thanks in advance.

The Canadian airman, Harold Herbert King, how did he have Barry's mothers name?

Suspect his father was Randolph Whitehead.  You need to look up Randolph on the 1939 register for further info.  We are not allowed to publish 1939 details here.
