'First cousins once removed' are cousins that you share the same great grand parents with. 'Once removed' means that your cousin is one generation away from you. Cousins of the same generation as yourself are not described with a 'removed' note.
The son or daughter of the brother to your grandfather is your first cousin once removed. However, we usually do not refer to relatives with such exactness; 'cousins' will do. It is sometimes hard to keep track of your first cousins twice removed and your second cousins once removed, but plotting a detailed family tree should help.
