Finding an address in the 1891 census

Google groups Search
from usenet:-I'm hoping there's a simple answer to this... given an address and an subscription, is there any easy way to find the relevant
page of the 1891 census?

I want to find who's living at the Brewers Arms at 87 Tewkesbury Rd,
Cheltenham, but I'm hoping I can avoid looking through the descriptions
of 49 enumeration districts.


Lateral thinking. Search for the person who lived next door to the Brewere
Arms in 1881 (Henry Fryer, Butcher). You'll find the Tanner family in the
Brewers Arms on the same page as Henry Fryer in the 1891.
