Forgive me if I've got this wrong, but doesn't that affect the whole
site? wouldn't everyone then get redirected to https ?

Allowing people to access the same site from 2 different urls is
basically what I'm after - ie
http://elfden.co.uk/  & https://server.shared.co.uk/~elfden/ (or even
the straight https://elfden.co.uk/). Which I was fairly certain wasn't
possible under a standard Wordpress set up.

sorry yes I'd forgotten this - though there isn't an option to set the
url for this in the settings, so how does this work for those with
shared SSL? Would I be able to utilise one of the functions that does
this to help me solve the problem?
