Difficult to.................

Difficult to identify without a shot of the underside of the cap I'm afraid. Could be Russula sp, or possibly one of the Milkcaps.

urban mushrooms

Its good to see someone else interested in urban mushrooms in Lambeth. I have posted a number of mushrooms spotted in brockwell park. I have spotted at least 8 different mushrooms on my housing estate in Tulse Hill. Its annoying that the council often come and cut the grass before i have had a chance to harvest the edible ones.

What type?

I agree with Blewit Boy a view of the underside would be helpful but suggest Russula exalbicans. Their season is July - November, they are often found in damp places but not usually grassy areas. Were there Birch trees near?
