Thank you Melissa, That is the problem, the roles each have numbers. Like in the Birth event child is 1 & 1005, Father 2 & 1006, Mother 3 & 1007. Burial Interred is 297 & 1012. Deceased is 18 & 1008.
When I first tried to delete the higher number when I found the extra roles I got a message that I could not delete the role. But this must have been because of the warning level as I have been able to delete those numbers that were not being used in my own setup. I have to work on the Deceased event template as there are two places where the high number is used.
I will report to this tread if I get all cleared up. Any reason that you can think of that would cause this to happen? There is also a mixed numberletter role name in the Birth event.
