There are a few you've missed from the list. There's a constructive list here... this guy's research is pretty good. And don't forget the Watson siblings.. I think there are 3 or 4 of them still kicking about...

 

Damn I knew I should've picked Marie Glory in the DDP.... I had well one of those gut instincts with her and Barbara Kent but I chose to ignore them.... ah well she's probs not going to get a UK obit anyway ;)

You may as well take names like Pola Illery, Nina Vanna and Billy Jacobs off because there is no evidence WHATSOEVER that they are alive. Only missing dates of death on iMDb!

 

Either that or make a split list with a Possibly living section.....

That's My first hit on the DDP, if a UK obit comes in a few days.
