Bivalve photos both halves open but still joined.
Ammonite -realise ID will be difficult but does not look like a dac with the groove on dorsal.
Piece of fossil wood?
Either part of horn coral or part fossil tree fern with frills
Lots of Gryphaea-usually give them to local schools.

The bivalve (nice) is Cardinia listeri, ammonite I think Arnioceras, woodor PERHAPS Ichthyosaur rostrum (beak), ? Calmites (plant stem) G. various.

Hello, beautifull bivalve!
The ammonite could also be: a piece of a living chamber of a Pleuroceras sp.

greetings, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...

The ammonite could be Asteroceras? not sure though.
4th one looks like coral to me, but the picture is not clear enough. Need a top view, wetted.

Thx again Colin...It's amazing....I always find something interesting at Filey.
At the moment there is a lot of Black lumps in the glacial sediment, I guess coal/plant material so should expect lots of carboniferous fossils. Instead mainly Jurassic stuff.

With erratics (glacial deposits) ANYTHING is possible (well, almost)!

Hi Roy.
here is top and bottom view and side...all wetted. I thought coral to begin with but longer looking I convinced myself it was Horsetail IMG_20180510_152043763_BURST000_COVER.jpg  IMG_20180510_152111486.jpg  IMG_20180510_152123393.jpg

 Sorry Colin, but I still think it looks like a coral.

Hi Colin,
Filey again I'm afraid -I have no idea on first slab...Someone else found it and it is around 12 inches long. When I first saw it from a distance I thought maybe sea lily but up close it appears to be separate bits joined together. On rear of slab looks like a long straight irregularity maybe a burrow in-fill or other side of this object. As I said it isn't my fossil but I thought it was so different I would post to you.

The other I thought maybe a worn Turitella type gastropod. 
Other finds were couple of bivalves and mandatory Gryphaea but I had these before on here.

Hi, I really don't have a clue on the first one - burrow? The little one is a gastropod of some sort, but not a Turitella, it actually looks like a very worn modern one to me!

Definitely a fossil Colin but I guess too worn to ID.
I thought burrows but just such an intricate pattern and so close together!

Certain it's only a trace fossil.

It is a nice trace fossil, Taenidium or something similar.
