You should only go the lightning source route if you expect to sell books. Otherwise the no-setup-charge from Lulu is hard to beat. (Note that Lulu themselves use Lightning Source for their books in distribution.)
Lightning Source do have a UK branch, but you'll need to be prepared to become a 'proper' publisher, buying your own ISBN range, and producing ready-to-print PDFs.
Thanks for the heads up on Lightning source. That might become an option for the other two writers I'm involved with at a later date, if and when we set up a collective.
