If like me you have had enough of cold callers/telemarketers etc phoning you at home during the day, when you are sitting down for your evening meal, when you are relaxing at the weekend etc etc then i have the solution :)
There is a website called which stands for "the Telephone Preference Service" and it provides a FREE addition to their register.

I quote direct from their site

The Telephone Preference Service (TPS) helps you to make sure your telephone number is no longer available to organisations who may telephone you with offers and information you do not wish to receive.

Under Government legislation introduced on 1 May 1999 It is unlawful to make unsolicited direct marketing calls to individuals who have indicated that they do not want to receive such calls.

You can either do this by contacting companies directly and asking them not to phone you or you can register with a central service (The Telephone Preference Service) to stop all such calls.

The term individual includes consumers at their residential address, sole traders and, except in Scotland, partnerships.

It is free to register with the service.
Sounds good :)

We have been registered a while and after a few months it worked apart from those who use the latest trick of getting pc's to do random dial ups from the telephone directories, if you answer a call centre bod phones you back, they are not technically using a database, also applies to the exploited home workers who trawl printed phone books
The TPS is better than nothing now, bit like a spam filter, some still get though
