Thanks just been told (by a random Twitter user) they may be Cortinarius species and that a lot of those are poisonous.
I have dissected one here.

Hi there. Can anyone help me id this mushroom? We have loads of them growing in our garden, and I'm sure they're edible, but hesitate to try them for obvious reasons! Pics included. Most of them are around 2" in height, with a good clean 'mushroom' smell.

they most definately are not edible

I found these in some shady woods just growing out of the bare ground. Smell strongly of mushroom, surprisingly!
I think they're St George's but not 100%.
Are there any poisonous mushrooms that look similar to St George's?

Hello there. Welcome to Downsizer. St Georges don't seem to grow round here, so I can't help with the id, but if you wait a day or two someone will be along to help I'm sure.

While you're waiting do a spore print and take a photo of a section through one of the 'shrooms.
