Deleting out of date Google contacts

I am sure that I am not alone in finding that Gmail and Google calendar appears to hold onto auto-fill emails for far, far too long. And, despite clicking on particular entries and trying to delete them, there appears to be no easily accessible place to delete email addresses or other contact details.

However, there IS actually a relatively easy place to find our master list of contacts - simply go to https://contacts.google.com/?hl=en

To edit our master list, simply delete, update or shuffle elements. Give Google at least 24 hours to update the list. I recently pruned 700 dead entries from my main contact list, which was quite liberating. 

However, as I use Outlook as well, I am finding it increasingly annoying that I need to keep more than one list, but hopefully over time these will consolidate more - or that the apps will get smarter at consolidating for me. Here's hoping!
