Whether to allow deletion of related records or not

Post

     I set up a transactions table. I have a goods inwards layout where I add new stock. I don't allow the deletion of related records in my inventory table because I'm afraid if more copies of a previously entered sku need to be added and I subsequently need to delete an entry in the goods inwards table I'll end up deleting an entire item in my inventory.

     But most of the time I need to delete both the entry in goods inwards and in the inventory. It is quite cumbersome to delte it in goods inwards and then go to the inventory layout and then delete the item too. 

     I could add a button that deletes the record in goods inwards and the related record in inventory. Is this the best solution? Or should I just go ahead and allow deletion of related records in inventory?
