*Are they only composers lyrics being set to tune by others (say by chembai) or they are Vaggeyakaras.?
*I understand their songs were focussed on kerala Guruvayoor.

Chembai, being the most noted singer from Kerala in the past century, has been the foremost among the singers to patronise their lyrics by setting them to tune as per his imagination and singing them in his inimitable style.

After the court musicians of Swati Tirunal who dedicated their compositions to him in the name of the ruling deity Padmanabha, hardly any vaggeyakara has originated from Kerala.

The names of these vaggeyakaras should really be Ravivarman Thampi and Minakshisuta.

Irayimman Thampi (Not Ravivarman thampi) was a Vaggeyakara who also set tune for his songs. IIRC he was a contemporary ( or uncle) of Swathi Thirunal who compiosed a lullaby for Swathi Thirunal Omana thingal kidavo in Navroj.
Another famous composition of him is Karuna cheyvan enthu thamasam in Sree Ragam which is sung by Chembai in Yadukulakambodi. There are many other compositions as well.

This is not correct. There are many composers in Kerla whose songs are sung in concerts in Kerala (eg.K.C.Kesava Pillai, Kuttykunju Thankachi). I remember Parassala Ponnammal Mami gave a concert in Chennai about five years ago consisting of compositions of Kerala composers.

The book of compositions of Irayimman Thampi entitled," ōmanattiṅgaḷ: iriyimman tampiyuṭē saṅgīta kr̥tigaḷ" (book info) published by the Kerala Sangeetha Nataka Academy in 1973 has long gone out of publish. Ifanyone has the book, please contact me.

You seem to have forgotten Lalitha Dasa from Kerala whose songs Chembai used to sing.

Thanks, Lakshman Sir. One song is missing: varadē śaśidhara cētōpahāriṇi in tōḍi. This song was featured in the Carnatica concert album of Parassala Ponnammal entitled, "Composers of Travancore" (link).

The composition, "karuṇa cēyvānantu" was originally composed in the rāga puranīrmai - there is a (gone extinct?) recording of CVB explaining that this rāga is not found in any authoritative texts but exists - has close semblance to yadukula khāmbhōji in structure with some minute differences in uses of phrases to the latter.
