These identifications of gault ammonites are based on the help i had earlier on this week and the gault ammonite website, so i am still quite a notice so would appreciate someone to help me with these. Please tell me if you need shots from certain angles. I know this is a big ask so sorry about that

1. This first lot i think are anahoplites planus but i am uncertain on for one reason or another

Hmm, I'm still not too sure, it's only the centre so it's difficult to id, I think I will just leave it as Anahoplites sp.
