As I am having the headling replaced in the heads, I had to remove the glass sliding doors to a locker. One came out OK but the other was extremely difficult and could do with reducing in height by about 1mm to make it easier to re-install. Would wet and dry be suitablefor this or, due to the hardness of the glass, should I use something else?

When I had the glass windows made for my wheel house, the manufacture made some too big by a millimeter or 2 and trimmed then down on a large wet grinding machine. I think it will take you a very long time to do this by hand with wet and dry but using a small pneumatic angle grinder with cause wet and dry using a hose feed water may do it. Don't use an electric angle grinder and water will get into the grinder with dangerous results.

BTW my glass windows were toughened and laminated 13mm thick glass same as used in banks but not as thick.
