I'm not sure exactly what you want. In the score, you only have to
specify the rehearsal marks once. I often define a separate voice
with the rehearsal marks, general tempo indications, and so on, 
which I include only once in the score but for each instrument
in the separate parts. Example:
global = \notes{
\time 4/4
s1*15 \mark "A" |
s1*7 |
\time 3/4
s2.*2 |
s2.^#'(Large "Accellerando") | s |
s2.^#'(Large "Piu mosso") | s |
s4 s2^#'(Large Allargando) |
\time 4/4
s1^#'(Large "Tempo I") |
s1*8 \mark "B" |
s1*26 \mark "C"|
  \context StaffGroup <
    \context Staff = viI <\global \viI>
    \context Staff = viII {\viII}

In your case, I don't really understand how you want the marks
to appear in the reparate parts if you write them using volta
repeats and have different marks for the first and second repeat.
