I've heard it suggested that those UK records which today we find noisy were not so when new, but for whatever reasons have developed surface granulation more than other discs over the years.

I read some music reviews of the thirties on the Gramophone magazine that mentions "crackle" on HMV records, so it could mean it was there from new. But I agree with you that some of them that visually look pristine today have such a high background noise that it must have come from some structural degradation of the surface over the years - if such high noise were present when newly issued probably nobody would have bought them. I also have a few HMVs from the period that have relatively quiet surfaces, which at least serve as example that the production was not consistently noisy, or that some of them did not degrade like the majority of their contemporaries.
