Having recently mistaken an AC 16/80 for a SS100, I have to add a caveat, but I think that this is an SS100 this time. The London registration for about 1936/7 is correct. The correct name is SS Jaguar 100, but I cannot say whether this is the 21/2 litre or the 31/2 litre variant.

I think you are right this time John - those headlight brackets are a distinctive feature of the SS100. Looks like an Aston-Martin Zagato on the left.

Can anybody think of a reason for the Austin Cambridge behind William Woollard being present in this company?

This is either the Heritage Motor Museum in Gaydon or the Patrick Collection in Birmingham. Both are thanked in the credits.

The Aston most likey belongs to Patrick Collection (who also run Patrick Solihull Mercedes dealership), whereas the other 2 would be Heritage Motor Museum .
Guessing location as Heritage Motor Museum.

Is it a Cambridge or a Westminster?

The Heritage Motor Museum is a very modern circular shaped building at Gaydon so it must be another location I think.

1) The manufacturer of the SS100 was registered as "SS Cars Ltd" in 1933. The Jaguar name was applied to the cars after the introduction of the SS100 in 1936, but the name of the manufacturer was not changed until 1945, as the connotations of SS were not good by then. To follow the convention of Manufacturer and then model we should have "SS Jaguar SS100 31/2 litre", which is no worse than some of the modern car manufacturers stoop to.

2) It's a Cambridge, the Westmister grille never curved outwards under the headlights and the Westminster had an intake scoop on the bonnet nose.
