You dont. Profiles may be merged away but  not deleted.

OH dear! He is a real person but brother not father as I have just realised from the dates. I have looked on help but have not yet managed to change the relationship.. Trouble is I have so many Johns and Williams. Bit worried about carrying on with this if you can't rectifÅ· mistakes!
What is the Wikitree-ID of the profile of which you are asking?  You're Wikitree-ID is Greenleaf-677 as an example.
I added an unknown father for William and made John his brother which looked like the error since they were born but two years apart.  Did this correct your problem?
Thank you so very much. That is exactly what I was trying to do. Their father is called William too
Happy Easter!  Also, there is a link on the profile for the Unknown father where you can click where it says [adopt this profile] and you will have that profile on your watchlist and can change his name to William and add the details.
Thank you, you too. :-)
