They've been sitting outside my house wasting away for years, thought I should look after them because my mother won't.

Definitely a species of Gasteria, but I'm unsure as to which one.

I agree, it looks like Gasteria but I don't know which one. We have a few in the database with photos and information: http://garden.org/plants/searc...

Hi ducksass and welcome!
Gasteria excelsia , croucheri and minima are so similar your photo. You may need to have your plant in the presence of the others to distinguish the difference. Fortunately, the culture of all is identical so advice on their care will be the same.

Thank you everyone, I appreciate the help with this. Hopefully now I can get them back to a healthier state.
