Go away the earth connection connected to the mounting box. If more than one cable is going to any terminal, stick a tape tag on each core before you disconnect it and label it to expose which terminal it was connected to. As an alternative, make a sketch.
Each mild around the home is usually managed from just one switch, which makes or brakes the circuit to the mild as it is operated.
