Where I get my coral and tree fossils there are loads of stones like in the pictures. 

the middle one looks like it has fragments of laminated shells
are these fossils as I can’t find a picture or description in my books! 

thanks in advance

You are correct laminated shells, ie pieces of bivalve and they are fossils but difficult to identify exactly.

Agree with Gary, but the rounder ones are brachiopods.

Thanks for your reply, I’ll definitely keep looking for more, although they are numerous on the beach I go to. I always come back home with something when walking the dog.

You may be able to slit them open and expose the shells within.
