Could Harriet E Whitehead have died in  1917, Blackburn and Randolph re-married?

The Op said mother was Mrs. W. Whitehead

Yes, and the W could be the husband’s initial, or hers.

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

In King's service file, as well as most RCAF service files, is a telegram from the squadron to the Air Ministry which lists all crew as well as next of kin. Canada declassified these in the mid 90s.

Thanks for replying.

No other marriage for a Randolph after 1917.

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

Jamjar

Thanks Jamjar. 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.

Many thanks to all.

I'll have a look on the 1939 Register. It's also not unheard of corrupted groups of letters on these telegrams ie. Mrs W. I was just going on what I could see.

I originally thought that, there is a William Whitehead in Todmorden 1939.

Yes, I was just thinking the 1939 may help.

Meanwhile, here is Randolph on the 1901 and 1911 census:

There are only two William marriages that would suit:

Sep 1918 Todmorden 9a 446
WHITEHEAD William
MILES Sarah E

Dec 1919 Todmorden 9a 621
WHITEHEAD William C   
KENYON Martha A

No Barry birth to either.

I guess that just because Barry was ‘from’ there, doesn’t mean he was ‘born’ there.  :-\
