Screenshots just show Paragraph Styles - not character styles... I'm not sure what the problem is. 

 

What changes are you trying to make? What's happening and going wrong that you need to work?

Can those paragraph styles be removed?

I'm trying to move those first pages (title, copy right, blank &
dedication) in a different order without affecting the layout formatt of
the book after chapter 1

But a different order has nothing to do with styles...

Hi @Debbie5E33:

You can rearrange pages by dragging them in the Pages panel. The paragraphs styles will not change. I will note that you seem to have primary frames under them, but it does not appear like you are using them. It's just odd that they are there.

 

If you would like to share the file, you are welcome to put it on dropbox and post a link here (public) or message me by clicking my picture above this post (private).
