Hi, my husband bought this pretty little cactus for me, I'm guessing it might be from the Mammillaria family? Can anyone help with any further info please? Might it be self fertile? I'll get my little brush out if so!

It would say definitely a Mammillaria, but I'd have to do some book browsing to come up with the specific species. Those flowers should make a positive ID possible.
I'd give transferring some pollen from one flower to the next a go, not sure it will lead to anything, but why not try.
