Bowled
Caught
Caught and bowled
LBW
Stumped
Run out
Hit own stumps
Obstructing fielder
Deliberate handling of the ball

I think the tenth one has something to do with not making out to the crease in time - so it's more of a test match only type one?

Might be wrong though - probably missing areally obvious one.

hitting the ball twice?

Yeah - that'll be it.  
Grind

I guess picking the ball up and obstructing the fielder must count as the same then.
fartcatcher

so if you hit the ball and it's spinning back and heading for your stumps, if you stop it with your hand or your bat you're out but if you stop it with your foot you're not.

bit of an apostrophe nightmare that sentence.

No. I think you're only in trouble there if you use your hand.

Obstructing a fielder is quite different.

Hmmmm.

I guess caught & bowled and just plain caught might be considered the same, otherwise there are eleven ways to get out.
Forest

I think you have them all, they are...

Caught
Bowled
LBW  
Run-out
Stumped
Handled the ball
Timed out
Double hit
Hit wicket
Obstructing the field

Interesting. I'm not sure that you can.  

We used to pick our fixtures based on the quality of the teas on offer.

I'm sure you can but it wouldn't be the same as being given out.
Grind

Given out bollocksed before wicket.
