I have a few pictures of a friends family and I wondered if anyone could offer help as to regiments and corps etc.

Those with badges that can be seen appear to be Royal Engineers.

The Lady wearing the Honiton lace Collar seems to be wearing a Sweetheart Brooch,possibly RE or even ASC

The moustached soldier with a lanyard in his jacket surrounded by family wears an "utility" SD jacket, so possibly he is a per-1916 volunteer (though I bet you must have figured it already).

Something that makes me curious, though, are the medalions he wears in his pocket: they seem to me like the gilded baptism medalions which we wear -or rather, used to wear- here, usually with an image of the Virgin or JC (or both, one in either side). The two ladies likewise wear similar-looking medalions: Catholics? (please excuse me as the items may not have any religious connotation)

No idea about uniforms, but I reckon the sergeant in pic 2 (bottom left) must have been in the masons.
