Could this be a Shelvoke and Drewry product?

Some similarities to S&D but unlikely I think.

Don't recognise the cab (with sliding doors perhaps?) special purpose-built body on normal chassis?

Almost looks non-British to me - French Citroen or re-built WWII van of some sort.

Not identical but some similar features - 1953 Laundry van rebuild of 1935 Fordson!

Something electric?? Doesn't seem to have prop shaft or other oily bits underneath.

I did think about electric but this must be 30cwt or 2-tons at least with twin rears. I've only seen I think one 2-tonner (1930s) and a low-built truck for coal.

Also no batteries underneath; low down to improve CofG? Could be a prop-shaft there but cannot see a fuel tank location? (edit: later found to have a gravity-feed fuel tank mounted inside the cab!)

Gut feeling is Karrier Bantam though can't match front end exactly .
Incredibly high off the ground for urban delivery , fancy having to climb into and out of that all day.
Unless aspect ratio bit off ?

Recognised as a Thornycroft.

After a quick search model is Handy 2-ton https://www.gracesguide.co.uk/File:Im1933EnV156-p473a.jpg
[BE FB4] was forward control Handy. /vehicle_895589-Thornycroft-Handy-AE-FB4-1934.html

1934 Thornycroft Handy 2-Ton CM road test (Dec 1933).

Looks like JB6307 registration? >>> date 1932 to 1936 any better accuracy dsl?
