Possible identifications

Yes, Hebelomas, and I would say two different species.
The Cambridgeshire one MAY be velutipes (syn. leucosarx) and the Bucks. one MAY be sinapizans.
However, for positive ID of this Genus you almost always need to check spores and cystidia (and have a good modern key such as that by the late Jan Vesterholt).
