Could it be Violet Webcap?

This might not be dark violet enough but they grow on peaty soil.

No milk

I think they were quite a young couple of specimens, the only two I found in the large lawn (about 1/3rd acre) - makes my back garden look like a handkerchief!! Unfortunately I can't go back and see how the undisturbed one has matured.
