Plate looks like LL 7630 (= March-July 1914) but not very confident. As I watched it I wondered if a funeral van or a police van.

Radiator shape is much like the contemporary Unic taxis.

Unic yes, for the radiator including the correct 'Unic' script position.

Mann and Overton from 1910 also showed delivery vans as well as taxis based on the Unic chassis.

The funeral van or a police van idea is possible as the van looks very advanced in design delivery vans were normally very basic in 1910.

OK - I'm going for funeral van as an explanation for the strange side windows.

I think it less likely this is a undertaker's van which is unlikely to have windows or an early motor-hearse which were much more ornate in design following the design of horse-drawn hearses with decorative metalwork etc.

I think the design is more likely and a more common vehicle a Traveller's Brougham similar to this in function with large side windows. It was displaying goods for sale as well as delivering them.

This is the Traveller's Brougham on the same chassis as the van, a separate vehicle for commercial travellers.
