Lots of plants ids!

Morning everyone, can anyone help me id some plants from my local hedgerows?
No. 1  is this rough meadow grass?
No. 2  this is soft. Purple moor grass?
No. 3  don't think this is cowbane, more likely angelica?
No. 4  is this hazel? Uppermost leaves seem too corrugated but perhaps that's normal for hazel?
No. 5  Acer campestre?
No. 6  this was growing alongside a dried up brook, about 50cm high
No. 7 in someone's garden, currently 2ft high
No. 8  in someone's garden about 1ft high
No. 9  I thought wild rocket but the leaves are wrong, the flowers are white not yellow.

No. 10  which iris is this? Very slim.

Sorry to have so many but the forum won't let me post more than once in quick succession so I thought I'd try to get them all into one post - phew! Many thanks.

    No. 4 Hazel
    No. 5 Not Acer campestre, more likely sycamore, Acer pseudoplatanus)
    No. 7 Possibly Viburnum opulus (guelder rose, a hedgerow plant)
    No. 9 Jack by the hedge/garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata)
    No. 10 Iris sibirica

    Too many in one question.
    Discussion /answers may get complicated./messy.
    Very happy to try and help in small batches.

    4. Yes Corylus avellana...common name hazel.

    Need more pics.
    eg 3 ...need whole plant , clear pics to show leaf detail, flower.etc.
    5. Not Acer campestre.
    10. Wouldn't even recognise it as an iris. Need clear close ups.

    The whole plant in situ  and max of 3 makes it easier to identify.
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Sorry everyone, I didn't know about the 3 plant ids rule. Wrist slapped.  Thanks for the help B3, Silver Surfer and Rachel.

    It's not a rule as such but people are more likely to have a go if there are fewer specimen s

    3 is most certainly not angelica most likely cow parsley but it's not a good enough photo to be certain.
    I think 9 is hedge garlic (garlic mustard ) Alliara petiolata

    Thanks Skandi.  I don't think it's Alliara petiolata because the flowers were all yellow.  But thanks for the suggestion

    Don't worry everyone.  I feel as if I've upset many by the number and standard of my photos.  I tried to delete my posts to end the conversation but I can't seem to delete them.  

    Don't worry anymore about identifying my plants.  Thanks to everyone for all their help.
