On the locked screen the time is one hours off the unlocked screen. I can change the time on the unlocked screen however I cannot figure out; - why there are two times when they should be the same, -how to change the time on the locked screen.

The time on the unlocked screen is probably a widget and set by something other than the system.

Navigate to your settings and date and time.

Make sure it's set to automatically update the time and time zone. If applicable auto detect DST

Not sure what a widget is. The two items you mentioned only reset the time on the unlocked screen which I have completed.
Once you unlock the screen the time at the very top of the page, in the thin black line is one hour behind the time on the blue screen. The time on the blue screen can be changed by the methods you mentioned.

What phone do you have? Are you connected via wifi? Have you tried restarting your phone?

Samsung Galaxy II
Yes with wifi
Yes I have restarted my phone
My son reformatted my phone and the times matched but then they reversed again on its own 10 mins later.

Is the time on your wifi router set correctly?
