EPNS is ElectroPlated Nickel Silver and EPBM is ElectroPlated Britannia Metal so unfortunately you have not found a fortune in the loft. I would suggest that 10-20 is the sort of return you might expect if you were to sell these. An online auction would not be the place to sell because of the postage costs. Perhaps you could find somebody who is doing a car boot sale and get them to take the set. Alternatively donate it to a charity shop?

To clean it use ordinary silver polish. It doesn't look as if it needs much work, but should look good with a gentle buffing as long as there is no plate loss anywhere. If there is any plate loss that would reduce the value.

Incidentally the "coffee pot" is for hot water - to top up the tea pot.

I am an antiques dealer. I think the best course of action would be to list it on ebay - you might get a couple of people bidding for it.

Please come and find out more....
