The 236 is one of Crockett & Jones' shorter lasts while still fitting true to size. Your toes will sit closer to the front of the shoes compared to the 348 for example and there will be more room in the 236 as it is a relatively wider, rounder last. 
We do not have the Snowdon in stock but can order it, as is the case with almost all Crockett & Jones models that we don't physically stock. The 228 last fits true to size; I would recommend taking 8.5 UK given your size in other makers. 
The Inca has an almond shape to the toe box whereas the Simpson is more of a soft chisel. In that regard the Inca does look pointier in the toe even though it is a roomier last than the Simpson. 
The 325 is one of Crockett & Jones' widest lasts and has a lot more room overall compared to the Rain.  
There is the Hallam II, Merton II, and Monkton II in the Hand Grade Collection that are on the 348 last in crocodile. As for the 358 the only one available at the moment is the Chadwick II.
Their last guide is likely still a work in progress. At the moment the Hand Grade Collection has shoes on the 337, 348, 358, 363, and 373 last. 
The Forest has less room in the toe box than the Inca so it is likely a good idea to size up half if you prefer something that as snug. 
 Don't mention it. Glad to hear that the Inca fits you well; it is a very comfortable and shapely almond toe last. Almost all of our customers take the same size in the Rain and Inca. 
The Inca is quite roomy in the toe compared to the Rain. It is roomier than the Robert and Soller as well despite the way it looks. 
For a wholecut we would recommend it be made in calf. Cordovan rolls, which would not look as good as calf, which creases horizontally, on more formal shoes. In our opinion cordovan is better suited for more casual shoes and boots.
