How do I delete a person from a grave and re upload a photo??

1 like 0 dislike
Basically what has happened is I transcribed some graves directly in the app while I was taking pictures.  When I uploaded not all the images uploaded for some reason and now I have names etc attached to pictures that don't belong and transcriptions with no attached photo.  Here is an example.


I have read the threads regarding duplicates and merging and have managed to clean up some of the records that way but how do I delete the transcription for surname "Slight" when there is no photo that I can attach it to.

Also I have now found due to these upload errors at least 5 photos on my phone that are not on the site but that say they were uploaded.  How can I re upload these photos?

OK figured this out partly.  Had a light bulb moment and changed the person who I wanted to delete to one of the people that did belong and then merged the duplicate.  Can't believe I didn't think of that before.

Have also found where I can upload photos of headstones from my computer but the location data is not uploading with it so I don't know if there is a better way to do this without going back to the cemetery and retaking the photo.
