Buffell Family - a Memory of Workington.

I am researching my late grandmother (Molly Bufell)'s family history and wonder if anyone can help.

I know a lot of her sisters performed on the stage in Workington and her mother owned a guest house where a lot of the actors stayed.

They lived in New Yard, Sewells Lane, Marsh Street, Jane Street and Jane Street. I also understand they lived in South Watts Street at Cockermouth.

Does the surname ring a bell with anyone, please? Thank you
