 Thank you for your replies, which gave me some interesting things to
 a Google image search for.

 To the naked eye these grubs are quite matt, dark brown to black.
 made me think they were dead, but they moved. The flash on my camera 
 gave them a translucent appearance. I have non-flash photos if anyone

 They don't have appendages, which many of the larvae I looked at on
 web do.

 Having failed to find anything that looks quite like this, yes it
 have been interesting to seal them in a bag and see what came out
 of horror film). I'm not inclined to retrieve them from my 'green
 bin' even for science.

 As well as the suggestions above, I also looked on Google for the
 insects I see around, centipedes, wood lice.

 Unlike vine weevil (which is the chief reason I was picking my way 
 through pots of lily bulbs) these are not common.
