4 is a Scorpion Fly - Panorpa sp female but females need microscopic examination to get any further.

9 Is a Cheilosia hoverfly. Something along the lines of C. impressa but these are a bit tricky so I would need a closer look before giving total commitment.

Many thanks to all. I am so impressed at how quickly I get responses and how you can recall this knowledge. I am now going to look them all up and learn more.  I am collecting specimens found in garden to look at under microscope over winter.  A never-ending source of fascination.
