Have someone put their ear to the gas tank and listen.And have someone else turn the key to the on position.You should here a buzzng for noise for 5 seconds that verifies the fuel pump is on.You can also spray starter fluid into the throttle body and try to start the truck.If it starts for a second or so then dies that means the engine is not getting fuel from the pump.Replace the pump.If it still doesnt start after that then the ignition needs to be checked for spark.9 times out of 10 when that happens it's the fuel pump or the ignition coil.Labor time on a fuel pump is 3 hours ( I just did one on same vehicle yesterday) And labor time on a coil is an hour or less.

Engine cuts out (sometimes) when accelerating from, eg, a stop street, traffic lights, then will start again straight away

I would suggest a fuel pressure test. It sounds like you may have a clogged fuel filter or a fuel pump that is not maintaining adequate pressure under load. Obviously the fuel filter is the simplest and quickest place to start and might be best to change before doing the pressure test. Good luck.

Driving along with no signs of problems what so ever. Parked up in town, and when returned and tried to start, the car will cran but not start. Disconnected battery and fuel pump relay then connected back...

I'm curious why you went right towards the fuel? Have you changed the fuel filter with regular schedule maintenance? If not, you may want to also look into that...
If otherwise, look towards the crank or camshaft sensor(s)... Typically this would also shoot a signal to the check engine light (when the vehicles is able to run)
Best regards
