you can start debloating the cell (give a look to warden threat)
once extra apps are removed/disabled you can go to google services
you need to identify:
- "google services framework" (gsf)
- "google services core" (gsm)
- "google playstore"
- generally speaking everithing having "google in the package name" (pay attention to contacts sync and calendar sync, just disable them)

the real problem is not about removing GServices but the related side-effects
- working in plane-mode,
- building your own magisk module to remove apps one at once (you can use "replace" via file-system approach to ne able to restore something if you run into boitloop)
- deleting /data/apps folder to avoid errors from updated apps (with google account references)
store, dialer, contacts, calendar, push notification, will not work,
also microG will not work propertly since the rom does not supoort signature spoofing
up to you to go with "aurora store" completely google-less or (keeping the oob playstore) install xposed+fake gapps, to support microG

(the process is not complex, but requires patience and time)
Good luck
