If your PCB material is thick enough, you can use a straight through hole connector as edge mounted. I've seen people do this before. Half of the pins on one side of the board, other half on the other side.

I know what you mean, its the same shape as a polarised IDC header:

But it has pins like a standard PCB TH female header. I used one for a DIY USB blaster.
As dirtylude said, its just mounted as end launch, which is often done with 2.54mm double headers. If you do'nt require polarisation, then a standard 2x10 female header fomr Rapid will do just fine. However, if you're after one thats exactly like an IDC cable mounted socket, with centre tab, then a quick search on Farnell, and I got these:

3M|8520-4500PL|SOCKET, PCB, 20WAY | Farnell United Kingdom

As you're in the UK (I'm a fan of your shop btw) I would highly recommend Toby Electronics for connectors. They're reliable, you can order small or massive quantities, and they have literally everything.

I believe you're after these:
Toby Electronics: 2.54mm Pitch Straight DIL PCB Sockets with Bump

Specifically B06d-20-AGAA1-G

Great price too.

Good luck!

Scott.
