Where the lookup field named "Cost Center" is missing can anyone advice on this please?

You have to expand the lookup & person or group columns to get more details out of these columns like:

https://****.sharepoint.com/sites/HomeOffice/en-ca/Forms/_api/web/lists/GetByTitle('Mobile Device Request Form')/items(1473)?$select=*,CostCentre/Title&$expand=CostCentre

With simple API endpoint like below only returns the ID of item selected from lookup list:

https://****.sharepoint.com/sites/HomeOffice/en-ca/Forms/_api/web/lists/GetByTitle('Mobile Device Request Form')/items(1473)

In your case, it is CostCentreId. This is already returned in the response you added to your question.
