I don't know anywhere called Cambra in the UK, are you sure that is spelled correctly? Do you mean Cumbria, or Cambridge? Also, how are the people you mention related to Mary Bell?

There is an isle of Cumbrae on the Ayrshire coast in Scotland. However, given the mining link, I suggest you look at Cwmbran in Wales which is known for coal mining. Also, the name Cwmbran natrually splits into "Cwm" and "bran". I'm not a Welsh speaker but I imagine a native speaker might well pronounce this name with a tiny pause. Unfortunately, a cursory search on ancestry reveals no Bells in Cwmbran.
