Grey Griffin credit updates after name change?

In 2012, voice actor Grey DeLisle married Jared Griffin, and from what I can piece together, went by Grey DeLisle-Griffin for a brief period before moving to simply Grey Griffin for her credited appearances. Subsequently, her IMDb page was updated to list her as Grey Griffin, as one would expect in cases where an actor adopts a new credited name going forward.

The problem is, when that was done, it appears that her previous credits were not preserved as "Grey DeLisle". So, we now have a situation where the IMDb is listing her as "Grey Griffin" in credits going back more than a decade prior to Ms. Griffin's marriage to Mr. Griffin, which is quite frankly impossible.

The exceptions appear to mostly be credits which already included "(as <something other than Grey DeLisle>)" notations — usually "Grey Delisle" — plus a few isolated credits where (presumably) users have submitted individual corrections since the name change.

When the change to "Grey Griffin" was processed, her existing credits should've been preserved by adding the "(as Grey DeLisle)" notation to them, but as far as I can tell that was not done.

Examples:
...You get the picture. All told, we're talking literally hundreds if not thousands of credits (if you count individual episodes of TV series), so making individual updates doesn't seem like the path to fixing this. Nor can I provide any concrete evidence that the currently-listed credit is incorrect, for 99% of these. But I can offer this screenshot, from the "Dan Vs. Burgerphile" episode of Dan Vs.. Like all the others, the IMDb listing now shows "Grey Griffin" in the cast...

Hello FeRD
You can add the (as ...) attribute to her credits before she married by selecting the titles where she is incorrectly credited and clicking on the Edit page button near the bottom of the page. 
Select Cast ... Correct / Delete 
Hit Continue 
For each appropriate title change the Action from Keep to Correct 
Hit Check these updates 
Add the attribute (as Grey DeLisle) or whatever she was billed as 
Hit Check these updates 
The background should turn green(ish) and it should give you a Submit button. 
Hit the Submit button then sit back & wait for your submission to be checked, hopefully approved and added to the database.

Thanks Steve, understood that this could be corrected individually, but as I mentioned in my original report, "All told, we're talking literally hundreds if not thousands of credits (if you count individual episodes of TV series), so making individual updates doesn't seem like the path to fixing this."

Hi FeRD -

Thanks for pointing out these potential credit errors, as there is a large amount of credits associated with Ms. Griffin's filmography, I have filed a ticket for our editors to investigate further and see if the applicable credit attributes can be identified and added.  In the meantime, if you are able to view credits for any of the related titles and have identified where Ms. Griffin has been credited under an old name, please submit those credit corrections through our online form.

Hello FeRD,

Thank you for your patience whilst we investigated this.

We have reverted credits to include the alternate name as an attribute on those which pre date her marriage in June 2012.

This should go a long way into getting the page back to the way it should be however if you do know of any incorrect credits or any credits where she was using the double barrelled AKA (or any other) as we know she did for a while please use the Edit Page button to make these corrections.

Have a great day!
