Bobo the bear
Found some unusual fossils today but am not really a Cretaceous clay man. Any help would be appreciated. 
First 2 pix are of an ammonite -as usual from Speeton extremely delicate

Crinoid stem/Sea Lily stem in chalk probably deposited on beach from Flamborough

  Phragmocone?

Lots of different belemnites various shapes and sizes

Partial ammonite but don't think anyone can give ID on this one

I forgot another Oyster type...They resemble Gryphaea a little but are different shape - much flatter and more like modern oysters.

Hi
To me your crinoid stem looks more like a worm tube. You could search for images of the different types of Gryphea to see if you get a match for yours.

Agreed. It doesn't look like a crinoid stem (or flint replacement of one). So an infilled burrow of some form.

Maybe got the large Belemnite as Acroteuthis subquadratus !

The "Gryphaea" might be a badly worn Exogyra.

Looking online I agree but Inoceramus labiatus also found there
