Would it be possible to point out who these people were on the census?

It helps to get the "whole picture".

I would say 'Bone' for the beginning of the third occupation - compare the final letter with the 'e' at the end of Ware in the second line.

Also, the final letter at the end of the word after bone is different to all the letters 'r' in the other occupations so that word may not end with 'r'.

Michael.

That is what I thought, Michael.

There are marked variations in letter forms even in the tiny sample we can see - a bit more would make things easier. However, what we can see would allow Furrier, Tunbridge Ware Turner, Band Sawer, and a repeated Furrier, which I think is the likeliest list given that sample.
EDIT: Bandsaws were not technologically feasible before the mid-1840s - the date of the sample may be telling.
EDIT2: Tunbridge Ware Turner (seemingly so obvious) has me worried, too. What gets turned in the manufacture of wooden inlaid decoration?

Thanks Karen. I must send a message to my brain to remember the obvious  ;D

Furrier
Tunbridge ware turner
Bone Sawer (?)
Furrier

I agree with Shaun.  :)

I also agree that it would be useful if you gave us the names and census reference, if known, of the people in question, so we can have a look for ourselves.

You often find people with similar occupations living in the same area, and sometimes the writing is clearer on other entries.  :) Occupations can be typical of an area too, so helpful to have a look at the bigger picture.

Hello,

Unfortunately we are not allowed to post full census pages like this.

Just in case it is removed, here are the details so the image can be looked up.

1861 345/147/15
