My old Gmail account was suddenly deleted and when attempting to do forgot password or to use the recover option I am told it doesn't exist. Also, when trying to use the same address again i am told it's already in use.

Not sure whats happened here and can't believe Google would just delete someones account with no notice as well as making it unrecoverable. I was definitely not doing anything wrong on that account which just makes it even stranger.

Thanks in advance everyone!

When you get the message "Couldn't find your Google account" that means either:  (1) you have the account name wrong, or (2) the account was deleted at some point and can no longer be recovered.
 
Account names are never re-used.  So if the account was closed/deleted you would get that it doesn't exist ("Couldn't find your Google account") AND can not be created (“That username is taken”).  See:  https://support.google.com/mail/answer/56256
