there are thing which called "mini-rester" to prevent water hammer.
Can be also done as a "bespoke" by any plumber (much cheaper then ready ones) . I have installed few of them and it's always helped eliminate the noise. I will recommend to install at least two of them on cold feed.

Hi, its does drive you mad, first thing you can do is make sure that there is no air in the pipes, bleed of any air also make sure all pipes are fix back bye putting pipe clips on and even wraping in insulation kind regards colin.
