4 Surname Transcription errors on Marriage Cerificate, in Census Documents and Suggested Hints boxes

Posted: 29 Sep 2013 2:12PM GMT
Classification: Marriage
Surnames: Tressider & Davies
Surrey, England, Marriages, 1754-1937 Ref No 8528/1/9 Marriage between Archie Tressider and Alice Davies.
There are 4 transcription surname errors on this one sheet alone. I have only been able to carry out 1 change in the Add Alternative Information box. The Spouse's surname is incorrect, Father's name is incorrect & Spouse Father surname is also incorrect. There is considerable original documentation to support the incorrect transcriptions & BMD Index. I came across these errors by accident, more of a shot in the dark. It is causing problems in finding information and the linking of documents to the correct person ie the computer will link the document the with husband but not with the wife as the name is different so it creates a new box.
How can these transcription errors be corrected and those in the Suggested Hints Panel. It all seems very convoluted so any advice would be welcome.
