an English cucumber is just the kind you'd buy normally in a British supermarket as 'a cucumber'. They differ from the ones usually sold in the US, which are shorter, thicker- and smoother-skinned, and have bigger seeds.
A British pudding is a dish, savory or sweet, that's cooked by being boiled or steamed in something: a dish, a piece of cloth, or even animal intestine.
The word "biscuit" comes from the French bis-cuit meaning cooked a second time (the word is the same in a English or French) and it means that thing that Americans call cookies. The substance that southern Americans call gravy Brits call wallpaper paste. This is gravy, made from meat juices, stock and gravy browning.
Biscuits and gravy are not a thing in the UK. The nearest things to what Americans call biscuits are scones. As for gravy, that white sauce you call gravy does not have an equivalent in the UK. Gravy is a brown sauce made from the scrapings of the meat roasting tin, stock and thickening agent (cornflour or Bisto).

Diaper is what they use in North America, and Nappy is the word used in the UK & Ireland, Australia, NZ and many other Commonwealth countries.
It eventually gave its name to the cloth used to make diapers and then diapers itself. The name “diaper” stuck in the US and Canada. In Britain the word “nappy,” short for baby napkin, became more popular and replaced it.
