Thanks! The Grand Prix, SuperCourse and Gran Sports used a different serial number pattern without letters prior to the start of the W.. standard. The Headbadge has a great description of these patterns here:
Raleigh SN's on the Headbadge

There is also a registry of Carlton serial numbers:

Scanning down the list, I don't see any Wm3xxxxxx format serial numbers.
