The iPhone home screen comprises all the apps you have installed on the phone. And the great thing about the home screen is it will also display the number of unopened notifications on each app. So, even if you deleted the notification from the notification center and have not opened it, you can see it on the home screen.
Simply unlock the iPhone and see the unopened notifications in each app. Although you may not exactly find out which notification you deleted, you will still be able to check all of them and see if you missed some important notifications.

This is another method that works sometimes but not every time. For example, suppose you deleted an app’s notification from the notification center and didn’t open it. Then, the next time any other notification appears from the app, it will accumulate the previously unopened and recent notifications together.
Although this method does not work with every app, some apps show you the collected notifications that have not been opened every time a new notification comes.
In the above image, you can see the below notification from Friday (2 days ago) also appeared along with a recent notification from 3 hours ago. The Youtube app accumulated the previously cleared but unopened notification and the new one.
