Article on Mitch Murray, Songwriter[edit]

I’m hoping someone can help me. My Wikipedia page, edited - I believe- by Derek Bullamore - has a very basic piece of incorrect information due to a mistaken entry in the London Gazette, nearly a month ago, when I was awarded a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

I changed my legal name by Deed Poll in 1968 from Lionel Michael Stitcher to Mitch Murray, and my CBE honour is actually in the name of Mitch Murray, not my birth name. I have the original Change Of Name Deed and this was supplied to the Cabinet Office at the time I accepted the award. They tell me they supplied the correct information to the Gazette, but somehow the wrong information was printed.

I am quite happy to supply a copy of the Deed to whoever wishes to see it I will also arrange for the London Gazette to confirm the correct name, Mitch Murray CBE, which is now on file officially.

I understand why whoever edited my page did so, using the entry in the London Gazette, but the name Lionel Michael Stitcher has not been my legal name for 51 years, and I am happy to prove this and verify it with documentation and backup from the Gazette or the Cabinet Office.

I am finding the incorrect entry a complication to my professional ‘brand’ - much worse than the wrong ‘Spouse’ entry (we were actually Divorced in 1980).

Could someone please help me with this problem?

Many thanks

Mitch Murray CBE (honest)
