I'm thinking yes on 'Beni-shidare'. You can see a few flowers that are deep pink. So it looks like maybe this is finishing its bloom and the flowers have faded (which they do) and are losing their moisture content, so are a bit smaller. In a few days if you see one of the sure 'Beni-shidare' you posted earlier, see if it looks more like this one now.
'Autumnalis Rosea' probably - seems like there's quite a bit of pink there. They fade to white when the blossoms get old, so you have to look for pink around on something.
I think 'Whitcomb' on the other. It's a young tree. I can't tell if it's just well-grafted, or that's not grafted up high and the grafting is at the ground, but I think it's just unusually healthy because it had a good start. The blossoms do look right, as you say.
On north west side of Nichol Rd crossing 16 Ave Okame cherry on parking lot. The tree is big but hiding in conifers.

End of March, early blooming cherries in full bloom. Here is my list of best early blooming cherry locations in White Rock/South Surrey
1.Buena Vista & Martin, between popular paths to the beach. Big tree, blooming ahead of others
2.Southmere crescent-17Ave(?????), not so significant bloom but it is on the cherry street, people can come and see there would be other trees in bloom, in the center of the city and close to Semiahmoo shopping mall. I tried to be short and reasonable, maybe Accolade on Southmere crescent-17Ave not the most remarkable, many others look better but they are far from the center.
3.16A Ave & 142 Str, 3 nice trees and many others cherries
4.12Ave & 161aStr, very big and nice tree and very close to Whitcomb trees street
5.18Ave & 145Str big and nice Accolade, 144Str planted with cherries
1.145aStr and 30Ave, across the school
2.16Ave-128St, parking lot of shopping mall (Safeway)
3.160Str -9 Ave ( Seacrest Motel)
1.Royal Ave-Johnston Rd, nice tree, ocean view, between paths to the beach, blooming ahead of others
2.Buena Vista and Everall St, 2 beautiful tree on north side and one young on the south side, blooming ahead of others
3.Beachview Ave-Buena Vista, 2 trees next to the beach path
Okame, I would recommend all 3 locations that I found
Southmere crescent &17Ave,133b Str & 18a Ave(2 trees), Nichol Rd & 16Ave (popular intersection)
1.Victoria Ave-Martin Dr, 4 trees around the building.
2.29A & Northcrest, big, beautiful
3.162a Str & 13Ave, 6 beautiful trees
136Str & 22aAve Okame cherry and
135aStr & 22aAve Snofozam cherry

23Ave & 138Str Pandora(unknown???) cherry tree
138aStr near 23Ave 2 pruned Accolade trees
149Str & 20aAve and 148aStr & 21Ave mature nice looking Beni-shidare cherry trees
Yes, the upright branches and those narrow, not-overlapping petals look just like 'Pandora'.
You might be right on the 'Fudan-zakura' too, though the timing (still has a lot of buds) makes me think maybe not. The tree shape is not what we've seen on our few on Nanaimo St, but the look of the flowers on the branch and the very short fat calyx tubes look right. The long single yellow pistil sticking out from the bud isn't quite right. Too bad we don't know how long it's been blooming, but it does seem like it's just coming out now, which is late for 'Fudan-zakura'.
'Spire' is in the running. The timing, tree shape and flowers are right, except for the calyx tubes, which seem to be longer than on these. I might have to copy this to Ornamental Cherries to keep it in mind till we figure it out.
I have the same doubts about Fudan-zakura, it is late, but looks like it. Young tree and maybe features are not developed yet?
Along the route 18aAve, 136aStr,19a Ave, 139a Str 5 Beni-shidare cherries, 2 beautiful Accolade trees, one Snofozam and streets planted with late flowering cherries. Looking forward to see this beautiful place in April and May
