Sir Rowland Whitehead, 3rd Baronet
Outside parliament, Whitehead was a Bencher of Lincoln's Inn, one of HM the King's Lieutenants for the City of London, a member of Berkshire County Council, Chairman of Council of Clifton College, a member of the Committee on Work of National Importance, 1916–1919, and held a commission in the Second Volunteer Battalion of the City of London Regiment. He was appointed a King's Counsel in 1910.
In 1893, Whitehead married Ethel M. L. Rathbone, a daughter of Philip H. Rathbone, and they had two sons and two daughters. Ethel was the aunt of the actor, Basil Rathbone. The family lived at White Cross House in Winterbrook near Wallingford in Berkshire (now Oxfordshire).
He inherited the baronetcy from his elder brother, Sir George Whitehead, 2nd Baronet, when his brother died on 21 May 1931. On his own death, the title went to his son Major Philip Henry Rathbone Whitehead.
