Sorry to be so thick ...

For what it's worth, I don't recognise that.

... but all the above went well until I revisited the page styles having shut down LO and started again later. Sadly the new style I had created following your steps above was not there! I have looked for a "save" option but cannot find one. How do I fix the newly created page style so it is available in the menu in future?

Styles are saved in documents. If you saved the document you were working in when you created the styles, the styles will still exist in that document. (If you didn't, they won't!) If you want to use them in another document, you can import them using the Load Styles... facility in the Styles & Formatting window.

But in your case, you appeared to want these styles in documents in the form of letters, so the sensible way forward would be to create an otherwise empty document with any headings you wanted and your new styles. Then save that document as a template (File | Save as Template). When you want to create a new letter, instead of starting with a default blank document, start from your new template and then save the document so created as the new letter.

You'll probably want two new templates, one for each of your letter types and each containing just one set of new styles appropriate to that letter type.
