    As per the title, looking for recommendations please.

    I've considered a home set up, but printers capable of delivering true blacks are expensive, and thus prohibitive for my pocket.

    I've been really impressed with Peak Imaging (http://www.peak-imaging.com/). I've used them for both colour and black and white and colour. They're based in Sheffield and have their roots in film processing (which they still do).

    They can send you a calibration print for Monitor calibration and you can ask them not to optimise your image, otherwise they will autocorrect, which is what went for and it turned out great.
