Squid eggs sacs

Several clusters of these sausage shaped and sized jellified masses attached to green seaweeds, were washed up on a Cumbrian shore and into rockpools. I think they have to be squid egg cases (originally attached to subtidal vegetation) and in my original pics I can just see the outline of developing young squid with eyes, chromatophores and tentacles visible. I think Loligo is the most likely genus, but doubt it is possible to be sure of more than "squid species"?
