On first look I would have called them Lyopyhyllum connatum.

But you mention rotting wood? Are you sure of it?
You should also look at Clitocybe truncicola and Ossicaulis lignatilis then!
Both rare. Or Ossicaulis lachnopus, even more rare and more of a Southern distribution.

They very closely resemble the Rhodocollybia i recently found, apart from in smell and colour (these are completely white). The smell is not like that of say Clitopilus prunulus (they specifically smell unpleasant) and they don’t resemble any Clitocybe species that I’ve ever seen. They have long, thick hollow stems and are growing in dense clusters presumably from rotting wood.

Mealy odor?

A few options:

Clitopilus mundulus
Clitocybe phyllophila
Clitocybe dealbata
Lyophyllum connatum

First one is edible, the others can be deadly or teratogenic.

Robust. Hollow stems. Unpleasant odor.
