Hi Elizabeth, welcome to WOL! Have you contacted the Royal Artillary directly? A lot of regiments seem to have archives going back a long time.

Hallo Elizabeth, Sometimes the names are wrong or missed out.
There are Whiteheads in Bedworth-you may find more information.
I believe the people who own 'The Cake Shop ' in Park Road are Whiteheads. this may be helpful.
