Yes. I recommend you to use MSU Sitemaps available at http://www.magic-seo-url.com/sitemaps/

http://www.fancydressretail.co.uk/hats- ... -fabric-43
leads to a 'Currently No Products In Range' page, was I under the impression that MSU took care of this showing the same page with or without the .html???
It is ok.
Following URL format http://www.fancydressretail.co.uk/hats- ... -fabric-43 is used for categories (it works with or without slash at end of URL, products URLs are always ending with .html), so MSU recognizes it as category which obviously does not exist and therefore URL is redirected to http://www.fancydressretail.co.uk/index ... ath=8_9_43 with HTTP 404 Not Found, so such URL is not indexed (btw it does not contain any unique content such as product description, only one message - it has no affect to keyword relevancy).
