One - rattle from rear of car, seemingly from parcel shelf. Found to be the plastic panel that lines the boot lid, that was rattling on the glass. Fixed by placing a bit of rubber at 6" intervals to hold the panel off the glass.
Two - rattle seeming to come from instrument cluster, goes away if you press on the information display in the top right hand corner. Fixed by inserting a tiny piece of rubber between display and bezel.

Nice one, two of my main rattles! Was the rattle from the boot more of a cracking noise on rough roads and on a camber etc?

I could do but you might lose interest by the time I get round to it! I'll describe it a bit better:-
From where the boot lid is hinged, down to the glass is a plastic panel. The panel just butts up to the glass and it rattles against it. It's quite easy to prize it away from the glass with your fingers. Just insert something in this gap so the plastic doesn't contact the glass.

A little trial and error still required to get the right adjustment but this is the culprit for a creaking/flexing noise from the boot:IMG_20170111_201911.jpg
