I think you mean British- English really refers to an ethnic group that is a combination of Angles, Jutes, Saxons, native British and Norman French.
And yes there are British gods though there is not a whole lot of info on them. It is hard to distinguish between what is British Celtic stuff and what is pre-Celtic.

I'm no expert, but when I went to Bath I saw references to the pre-Roman goddess Sulis. When the Romans came to Britian she was then worshipped as Sulis-Minerva.

Scrupulously austere in its order
Of white and black
Ice and rock; each sentiment within border,
And heart's frosty discipline
Exact as a snowflake'

There were thousands - every spring, stream and  river would have a presiding god or goddess. Most of the names are irretrievably lost.

Juniper has already mentioned Sulis. Try googling  some of the  other well known ones Coventina, Nematona, Cunomaglos, Sabrina etc. Then look around the sites that come up and you will find other deity names which you can follow up.

There is a wealth of information out there some good some bad but if you are truly interested in the Celtic pantheon you are going to have to do a lot of research yourself which will take time and dedication. Personally I've spent hundreds of hours reading  on the net and in  libraries. I've also searched out and joined  email groups.

Is that all the Celtic pantheons or just one or two of them?

I've spent hundreds of hours as well... and I'm only doing the Irish one.

The Oxford Dictionary of Celtic Mythology by James Mackillop is a good place to start.
