Nice topic! For me it's:
Suede
The Verve
Pulp
Stone Roses
Oasis
Blur

I think of Charlatans, Shed Seven and the others as one-hit wonders, a bit unfair perhaps.

Blur for me
I'm not including the madchester stone roses/charlatans/Mondays in the discussion.

Not am I including the Manics. In terms of peak era, they fit the timeline but their music didn't fit the guise of Brit pop at all.

Pulp
Suede
Elastica
Oasis
Catatonia
Early Travis
Mansun

Anyone but Kula shaker, really...

I'm not British and I'm not certain if these are all valid, but the rankings would be:

The Charlatans UK
Suede
James
Blur
The Stone Roses
Oasis
Cast
Pulp
Supergrass
Ocean Color Scene

There was a good 3-disc compilation called "Common People" that contained many bands, and featured the band Monaco (instead of something by New Order) so I'm not familiar with the precise criteria or the historic interval. However, this article could also provide some context too. Be well.
