A pity some of these older threads couldn't have been chased up.

The U-boat was U98 completed in February 1917and surrendered 16 January 1919. Finally scrapped in Blyth late 1919, early 1920.

The cruiser was SMS DRESDEN and I have since found two posts cards one of which shows her aground in the upper harbour and the other also aground by the piers.

The cruiser was actually SMS Danzig. Here is a very short article about her together with a picture of the ship in Whitby Harbour from my Whitby blog OUT ON YE!
