Basement steps railing repair


The outdoor railing around the steps to our basement door needs to be re-anchored. See attached pic.

I was thinking to remove the broken parts of the cinder block, leaving the "L" shaped portion as is.
Then make a wooden form that I could use to pour in some concrete so as to re-anchor the railing. .

Will this work and what type of concrete should I use for this?

Also, I'll have to make a new crown and patch some cracks in other sections of the crown and was wondering if I should use mortar for this.

Any advice on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated.

Is the remaining block stable, can you get cement down a few layers, if so it sounds reasonable.

Cement is fine, mortar would work, the patch work would be better with mortar so that would minimize the number of material needed!
