Do many people use this service at all?

https://www.bikeregister.com/

Apparently a national database that the police access. Free to register bike details, but they sell marking kits to visibly or invisibly (UV) mark your bike in a way that's traceable back to the database entry.

Anybody have any experience of getting a bike back due to using this service?

Didn't work for me. I had a registered Giant TCR disappeared by the garage pixies and never heard of it again. Although the current bike is similarly registered it sleeps in the living room (with wifely blessing).

Blessing, you are lucky, I get my partners grudging acceptance, perhaps tolerance if she (the other "she") is not too muddy.

Not used myself but have returned an stolen Trek Madone to its rightful owner thanks to a registration code-not sure if this scheme. Best bike in bedroom, second best, the commuter allowed in hall on work days only.
