I submitted a corrected birth name for the actor Jeremy Kemp who has recently died, citing an obituary which gives his full name. The signifance of this is that he chose one of his middle names, not listed in the previous Birth Name entry, as part of his stage name.

I've had it rejected as insufficient evidence 190724-185932-007000 "Your contribution has been declined.We have been unable to verify your contribution."

I've resubmitted 190727-114951-113000 with the same URL to the obituary, but this time also quoting the exact text which gives his full name.

https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2019/jul/24/jeremy-kemp-obituary
final line "Jeremy Kemp (Edmund Jeremy James Walker), actor, born 3 January 1935; died 19 July 2019"


Can I check whether this is likely to be accepted this time, or whether there is anything else I should do.

Ah do IMDB now need more than one authoratative (eg newspaper) source for a correction to name, date/place of birth/death? I'll remember that.
