Need to see the end grain a bit cleaner and also from side on (the grain that is) better chance when it's cut or turned, otherwise it's a bit of a guess.

First image (rough bark) does look vaguely like Ash.
Image 2 not sure,
image 3 Looks like Beech, note the wrinkled bit of bark under the knot, classic Beech feature, the end grain shot is blurred though, but it looks the part.

Image 4 looks to be the same as 2

Image 5 is most likely Sycamore, the bark looks right and the fine medullary rays on the end grain are right too, but again cleaner views and longitudinal grain would help to clinch the ID's.

It’s Ash...I’ve got loads here ready to turn...it looks the same...it’s certainly not sycamore... it white enough and the grain is too open...

Which photo Tanglefoot20?

I emailed the tree surgeon to see what they said.
1 & 1a = Willow
2 & 2a = Maybe sycamore
3 & 3a = London Plane
5 & 5a = Sycamore
