I have previously added Wi-Fi Networks on my iPhone which it automatically connects.

I want to remove some of these automatic Wi-Fi Networks, but I can't find a list on my iphone to remove the particular Wi-Fi Network.

How can I do this?

It is a simple process when you know where to look. You go to settings/WIFI, select the entry you want to remove (with check mark on left) under "Choose a network", and press the > at the right of entry.

At the top of the next screen you press the "Forget this Network" button to delete the entry.

Removing the Wifi access point from the iPhone is easy but not obvious. You can only remove the access point when you are connected to it. Starts the Settings App, select the “Wi-Fi” option. Under “Choose a Network…” section, you should see the Wifi access point you are connected to. Touch the blue color arrow button on the right. This brings you to a screen where a big “Forget this Network” button is on the top. Touch this button to remove the access point from iPhone.

Thanks, but is there anyway to do this when not connected to the network?

It's not possible unfortinally.
You need to be connected to the network.
