Is this a fossil swamp fish mouth plate?

image.jpgI Found these in ossett, West Yorkshire, UK.  They are carboniferous In age (if they are fossils).  Is the one on the right a fish mouth plate?  I found It in a huge clay hill, just next to where I find most of my petrefied wood pieces.  I do find a lot of nice pieces of petrified wood in the clay though. So do you think it's a fossil mouth plate?  Also, is the one on the leaft a bone fagment?  When you look inside it looks like bone marrow or is it just the shape of the rock?

    Hi Dan

    Just going through some posts of the fossils that you find near Ossett has made me wonder if you are collecting them from an old mine waste tip?

    You mentioned fish, plant etc but the better specimens don't come loose as you usually find them in nodules that need splitting in half, they are a bit like small cannonballs and are grey in colour.
