It would make it easier for us if you were to take individual pictures of the different plants and number them 1 2 3 etc, then we can say "No. 7 is xxx" and so on. Closer up pictures will also help us to be more certain of the identification - in some cases it is hard to tell from a distance.

To get you started, bottom right plant in picture 3 is Rebutia minuscula.

Ralph I tried to put them in lines of what I thought was the same
I can get individual pictures but at work until Sunday so not sure I will have the time until then but might get a couple later
If I have separated them correctly I will take a better picture of one from each row

Mike I guess it's No 6 (I was going towards that aswell) I should have put arrows on pointing up
Edds I guess that is no 5 that I think Ralph was referring to as Rebutia minuscula
Thanks for the help
I think I should have pointed out the pots are 3.5cm terracotta ones

1 is definitely a Gymnocalycium, but I don't think its spiny enough for bruchii. 4 - a nice plant! - could also possibly be a Gymnocalycium
8 could perhaps be Parodia microsperma - or could that be 2 or 9? Hard to say. There are other quite similar looking Parodias too.
7, 10, 11 and 12 are probably Notocactus, but again, hard to say which one. 7 is perhaps close to N. horstii.
3 will perhaps be easier to tell when larger - perhaps a Trichocereus.
5 Rebutia minuscula
6 Mammillaria bocasana probably.
