If you are asking about the process where a name is removed from the membership records of the Church, bishops use the instructions in Handbook 1, chapter 6.14.

If you are asking about the process where a clerk removes a duplicate record, or about other membership record processes, the clerk and bishop follow the instructions in Handbook 1, chapter 13.

Handbook 1 is available on the website to those priesthood leaders who are authorized to have it because of their current calling. Priesthood leaders, particularly bishops, are authorized to share information from Handbook 1 with members when needed. For example, if a member wished to have his or her name removed from the records of the Church, the bishop would explain the process to the member and assist him or her with the request.

Thanks for this direction. I'm also a ward clerk and had a similar question. I tried googling it, and almost everything that comes up is from members who have left the church and are antagonistic. Just a suggestion... it may be beneficial to outline the process of name removal somewhere that is accessible to the public. That way, members considering leaving the church can at least find webpage that won't lead them further away.

The process is outlined in Handbook 1: 13.6.2. It requires the approval of the bishop and the stake president.
