The final two are Orchis mascula ssp. speciosa.

1st one looks like Dactylorhiza x grandis to me - the hybrid between southern marsh and common spotted orchids. It's a very common pairing.

Looks like a sneaky back-cross to me. That lip is just too Common Spotted shaped to not have some influence but otherwise it's primary Southern Marsh.
