Hi Steve,
I can't identify the fungi for you, but I am pretty confident that number 3 is not Jew's ear (or the now politically correct 'ear fungus'). I've only ever seen Jew's ear growing on trees, specifically elder. It really does resemble a human ear when it is hydrated (picture here: http://www.treknature.com/gallery/photo155998.htm ).
When they are dried out, they are small hard black things. I have seen them on elders on the West Boldon Lodge site and I have eaten them sauteed in a bit of butter - quite nice though nothing spectacular.

I had Ear Fungus growing on a fallen branch from Westoe Cemetery in my front garden, eerie looking things aren't they ha ha!

No expert by any stretch of the imagination (unless I can eat it!) but I'd hazard a guess at:

No.1 Sulphur Tuft or possibly Brick Cap?
No.2 Some kind of Bonnet Fungus (Mycena)?
No.3 Some kind of Funnel or Milk Cap?

Hard to identify from photos as no indication of size to help

Thanks for the replies Clare and Rob, I really will have to start looking at these interesting fungi more carefully. Good point made there Rob regarding getting a shot along side a object for size comparison.

I'd hazard a guess at Horse Mushroom for the first and inkcaps for the second Sid.

If you're hungry Sid I spotted a big clump of Horse Mushrooms on the Fellgate Estate this morning. If you're quick you might just beat me to them this evening!

Your picture is a white coral fungus (clavulina cristata) it's edible but really not worth the effort mate.

Seen these in Bents park Sid a couple of weeks back...Thought maybe the same fungi as yours but the early stages of growth looks completely different. Very interesting this Fungi lark! (and thanks to Dougie got my gremlins sorted with posting pics. on here.).
