Need to correct Cemetery Category

+10 votes
I made a mistake and added USA to the end of my category, instead of just having the city and state.  Could someone correct that for me.  I don't have permission.  Thank you so much.'s_Station_Cemetery%2C_Leitchfield%2C_Kentucky%2C_USA

Actually you do have permission.  Or more properly no permission is needed.  It is not possible to change category names.  So the only method is to create a new category.

The old category will still exist so you need to add a template in showing the correct name.

This is the template

{{Misnamed Category|correct category name}}

So just go ahead and do it over - create a new category as needed and when you have it add the template to the old one and you are done.

There is lots more information in the Categorization Project.
