Photo linked to my business - appeared out of the blue!
I am responsible for my organisation website Saint Cecilias Church of England School. This week a photo appeared on the right side of the Google search engine which is not related to the organisation at all. Initially, I thought it was something related to Wikipedia and this is their response: Dear xxxxx
This does not appear to be present on the relevant Wikipedia article, so it seems to be a result generated by Google's Knowledge Graph. This uses a wide variety of sources, so while there may be a section labelled as "Wikipedia", images or other text before or after the Wikipedia excerpt may be from sources completely unrelated to Wikipedia. We have no control over how Google presents our information, but Google's Knowledge Graph has a "Feedback" link where anyone can mark a field as wrong.
I have already reported this to Google but so far haven't had no response. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated - it seems that no one knows how to resolve this issue!

The image is being pulled from here:
Your Google business page has not been claimed or verified ( I assume this is why Google is extracting images from what they believe are yours )
The Business Page:
Claim the business page. ( don't click verify )
Then correct any business details if necessary.
Add logo, Add cover image
Add additional images
Then request verification.
In your contact us page, remove the current embedded map, and add the Google map for your location.

All of this will reinforce to Google, what is connected with what and they wont extract images from other locations.
One last thing. I recommend you add the full school name to your websites <title> this is another reason Google took the image from the other site, they have the full school name.
Your current title : <title>St Cecilias</title>
Correct it to : <title>St Cecilia's Church of England School</title>
Any problems, just add to this thread and I'll get notified.
