Sorry, I have never removed a gas fire but as you have had it capped off, I would think that it's just a matter of finding the fittings and screws that hold it into place. If you have a torch just try shining it into any crevices to see if you can see any screws. If you find them it should be a piece of cake just to unscrew them and remove the fire.

Good luck.

Will there be a flue pipe that needs disconnecting as well? As if one does it may need supporting or removed from maybe a roof outlet?

Please check, but I think you'll need a gas safe engineer to remove it, for obvious reasons, it may affect your insurance policy. Some sites don't allow owners to replace gas fires with electric, my previous site wouldn't allow it.

Cylon raises some good points too.
