Is there a way to add space to the partition without unmounting and if not, what would the process be to unmount and then re-size and then re-mount?

Hi Andrew
All you need to do is boot from the install media in rescue mode (basically a live system) so all the partitions are unmounted, from here you can resize as required. What tools are you using?
