Is this a tank, only heated by the immersion ?
or is it heated by a boiler too ?

The hot water draw off, normally 22mm copper
mains cold water 15mm copper.
If it's connected to a boiler, 28mm copper.
You also need to install an overflow, normally 22mm plastic.

What does the immersion supply hot water to ? just the kitchen ? (as the bathroom is upstairs) ?

Normally on a low pressure system, feeds to sinks and basins are 15mm and the 22mm to a bath. The existing pie sizes should give you a good clue as to what are required.

Just be aware, the electrical work needs, under the new regulations, to be done by a qualified electrician.

do you intend to feed from the main or from a tank in the loft? if mains then should be no problem with pressure. if it was feeding the bathroom before with no problem then it should in theory work better if you move it upstairs.
