Can I login to iCloud to find old photos that I've deleted off my phone?
Almost a month ago, one of my best friends passed away. He was one of those blokes that very rarely took a photo. As I was going through my photos to find the only one I had of me a him together to post in the video at his funeral, I realised that it is no longer on my phone and may have been deleted. I always have backed my phone up, so, if I login to my iCloud, should it be there ? Also, if I can do that, how do I access my iCloud via laptop (not an apple) ?

First of all, I'm very sorry for your loss. May he rest in piece.
You may be able to restore your phone to a previous backup of which you know it contains photos of him.
Unfortunately, even if you had iCloud Photo Library enabled, if you can't find it on your phone, you won't be able to find it on www.icloud.com as well.
You're best bet is to restore to a previous update.
Make sure to make a backup before you do so, so you can restore back to your current situation on your phone.
