This problem was finally resolved with the generous help
of Bryn M. Reeves on the inux-lvm at redhat.com list.
The difficulty was that the utility kpartx had the lvs
opened via their mappings. Further, the mappings were
created with the -pp option of kpartx and that option had
to be provided to the delete action in order for that to
# kpartx -d -pp /path/to/logical/volume/name
Once the mappings were removed then the lvremove also
worked and the volumes were removed.
A small point, failure to provide the -pp option to the
kpartx -d action does not raise an error. Nor does it
remove the mapping however.
