This is a list of well-known Latter Day Saints who have been excommunicated, resigned, or no longer profess to be Latter Day Saints.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints[edit]

Although The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) does not regularly disseminate information about the excommunication or resignation of former members, persons who are here identified as having been excommunicated or resigned from the church have made such information public. In addition to former members of the LDS Church, there are a small number of adherents of related denominations (as labeled). This list may also include former controversial members of the LDS Church.

See: List of Latter-day Saints for current members of the LDS Church.
