I noticed the  ‘I’ Whitehead person and have been searching with no success yet.

It looks as though ‘I’ is shown on electoral register when they reached 21 yrs in 1940s.
There are two marriages which may be that person.

This is the only marriage I can see on FreeBMD, but the other partner’s christian name is missing:

Marriages Mar 1916 Blackburn 8e 798

WHITEHEAD Randolph   
SKILLICORN


Reversing partners surnames on FreeBMD I came across a
Harriet E Skillicorn marrying Randolph in the March 1916 Qtr in Blackburn.
One daughter in 1917 and then nothing.


You may already be aware but just in case............

The Jun 1917 birth of daughter was in the same quarter as death of
Harriet E Whitehead (age 28) Jun 1917 Blackburn
burial date 30th June 1917 Web: UK, Burial and Cremation Index, 1576-2014

added

I think their daughter married 1936 (E Ainsworth) and NA died 1957 age 40, they can be found together on 1939 register , looking at her dob it looks as if her mother died just over a week later....
