Technical 
By Default when you delete a Contact record from within WiredContact the additional tables containing data linked to the Contact ARE NOT DELETED.

To Turn on Cascading deletes go to the Admin area then select Site Settings | Table Defaults and select the "WCE_contact" table then on the right hand side at the bottom you will see "For Sub Entity tables - when record is deleted, delete all links to all entities:" 
 
Change the value to YES and sub entity tables will also be deleted when a contact record is deleted.

This action is not restrospective
