help in identifying possible fossils

Hi a recent trip to southwold beach fossil hunting with my children come up with these 2 items. Would love to be able to tell my son that i indeed found him a fossil and what it was.

 

thanks

    My best guess is a belemnite phragmocone, incidentally attached to a less interesting piece of rock (flint?)

     

    An orthocone nautiloid is a possibility, but less likely IMO.

    Ditto banded flint.

     

    It might be possible to make a more reliable determination upon examining the specimen, rather than looking at photos. But sometimes, specimens are fundamentally ambiguous.
