Mystery bumble bee

Can I please ask for help in identifying a bumble bee I found in my greenhouse a few weeks ago.  Unfortunately I did not have a functioning camera to hand.  It was large - I suspect a quenn.  The thorax was virtually black and the abdomen paler and striped.  The nearest I could get from various documents and websites was a Ruderal bumble bee, but I know that these are rare.  I live in Northeast Somerset so I suppose that the identification is possible.  Jimdad
