committedFeaturesRemoved notifies you that the feature were actually removed -
so they don't exists anymore.  But you can use the featureDeleted signal
that provides a feature id of a (to be) deleted feature and use that
to fetch it from the provider (layer.dataProvider().getFeatures...)

If you actually need the features after the are actually deleted, you can
store them in the featureDeleted slot and use the saved copy to in your
committedFeaturesRemoved slot.
