Photo 2 - I agree with Dave.
3, 5, 6 and probably 9 are belemnites - 5&6 are bits of "battlefield" - there's a well known bed there.

7 - hard to see, try wetting it, looks like belemnites again , possibly with one or two bivalves.

4 - cone-in-cone calcite, not a fossil

10 - limonite concretion, ditto

Hi Julian,
 

I was going to say google "belemnite battlefield" but it's now the name of a band!

Basically, an accumulation of many belemnites so that they virtually form a layer or lens of rock. The term was first used in Germany ("belemnitenschlactfeld" - Quenstedt 1856).

Different causes are likely for different examples - see this abstract for a summary:

Julian,
 

Can't see any detail in it apart from a hint of Carboniferous coral in the middle of the bottom area - does anything show up when it's wet?
