Family living at a specific address??

Location
Walsall
From
England
Is it possible to find out who was living at a specific address in 1900??
I'm trying to find out which of the Furniss family were living at 78 Church Street, St Helens, Lancashire in February 1900. I have a baptism record that has that address but I also have a conflicting address of 12 Kensington Street, Liverpool just before this so not sure if it's the same family.
 
They may not have lived there, but wanted to get Eveline christened at the particular church!
Perhaps a family member lived at that address( I have known it to happen)
At 1900 only certain male members were on Electoral rolls and only then under some circumstances!

That is certainly possible. Now off to try and find who lived in Church Street.

Just a thought but could that be the church address?? Such as St Helens church at 78 Church st

Church of England

  1. St Helen (formerly St Mary), Church St, St Helens, WA10 1AR
    St Helen (formerly St Mary) is located at OS Grid Reference - SJ 513952

I see that FMP now has an address search for the census records but I do not have a sub so cannot view:(
Perhaps someone could look up who was at no 78 for 1891 and 1900 to see if its a relation!

I don't have a sub either so it won't let me see anything. Could some kind person take a look at both 78 Church Street St Helens and 12 Kensington Street Liverpool please?
