Can anyone identify these bees please?

Can anyone tell me what kinds of bees or other insects these are?  The Michaelmas daisies are in different areas around the house.

    The top one looks like a Honeybee, the bottom one looks like a Hoverfly that is a 'bee mimic' (maybe Sericomyia silentis ???)

    The hoverfly is Myathropa florea rather than a Sericomyia
