How can I retrieve the notes that have disappeared from my iPhone?

It didn't say that before I went through trying to retrieve my lost notes thus trying to add an iCloud account. If there were any email accounts attached when the incident happened I am pretty sure it was my work email.
I reckon it isn't enough just having the gmail app and having google accounts across services?

I think some autocorrect did something to that post. I try again:
I didn't see "accounts" before I went through trying to retrieve my lost notes by trying to add an iCloud account. Now both my work email and my gmail is attached.
If there were any email accounts attached when the incident happened I am pretty sure it was my work email, but I couldn't choose between accounts or see which account it was attached too for that matter.
I reckon just having the gmail app and having google accounts across services won't mean that all of my notes are hidden somewhere in my gmail, or?

I have a list of notes in my notes app. I have been collecting these originally on my iPhone 4s and now on my iPhone 6 Vers. 8.3.
A week back all of these notes disappeared without me doing anything that I can think of being related to the notes app. I still haven't worked out how and why they disappeared.
Because of prior password and storage issues with iCloud nothing is saved in iCloud as far as I know.
When I was looking at my notes app before my notes disappeared I couldn't choose between accounts. This tells me that either no account (is that possible?) or only one account was attached to those notes (this is only something I have gathered from reading this and related threads). If any account was attached my best bet is that it is my working email, since this is the email that I am using through my email app on the phone.
I don't know if my google account could have anything to do with it?
Since it happened I have tried following some of the advice above, without any help. However now I can choose from several accounts when writing notes: iCloud (I tried registering again), my work account and ''all".

I only have iPhone and iPad access while travelling all through the summer. Can it be that I can see other folders with computer access?
Right now the standard account is my work email. The alternative is iCloud. However I am sure that it only lists iCloud because I have now re-registered and that it didn't when the notes disappeared.
I am not certain whether a standard account was listed at all when they disappeared. If so, it was probably my work email.

Then afterward, make sure only iCloud is turned on for notes in Settings.

This seems to have coincided with the most recent update that included the new music app.
For years I just used the native Apple app and it synced to iTunes. With the latest update it changed the backup to exchange and only my most recent notes are saved and they also reside in the notes folder in outlook.
From what I can tell the old notes are gone forever.
This happened at the same exact time on my girlfriends phone.

Gmail doesn't appear - only my work email (and iCloud because I have added the account after the loss of notes). I am pretty sure, however, that the sync notes function was not toggled on before I lost the notes.
From what I gather from this thread my last option is to wait until I have access to my work email on a computer and see if there should be any notes folder. Is that right? I'm pretty sure there won't be any unfortunately.
