Turns out they were C430HX and I already hit a snag.  They work great but they don't seem to have the feature to auto-hangup when you put them back on charge which is tripping up my mum.  She left an incoming call live for 4 hours, just hope she doesn't accidentally do it with an outgoing.
Shouldn't be a problem since about 2015 (?), when exchanges were modified so that calls are cleared by the caller OR the called party hanging up.

That's what I thought but it certainly at the very least holds the line open on the base station presumably blocking incoming calls.  I'd have to try calling the landline next time to see if it ACTUALLY holds the line open or not.

I think I figured out the problem though, the base stations are a bit crap so mum with her arthritic hands isn't putting the handset back straight so it doesn't hit the charging contacts thus doesn't hang up.  That's pretty poor, every other DECT handset I've had guide the handset into the dock so you know 100% its docked fully.
