You could also use an email client like Mozilla Thunderbird.  That would 
probably be easiest, although getting all your Gmail contacts into 
Thunderbird requires an extension (TdSync with Provider for CalDAV & 
CardDAV is the extention I use). One you have it there, it is easy to 
manage lists. Probably other email clients have similar things.

I played around in contacts.google.com and made the changes, but there is no save button and they are not reflected when I try to set up an email. Advice most gratefully accepted.
