Have you tried the genuki site? www.fhsc.org.uk/genuki/reg/ess.htm
Don't know if that would help?

It sometimes tells you at the top of the actual census page the district, parish and ward that the address falls into.

Also there is a site called www.visionofbritain.org.uk
You can find out historical info about any area of britain from that. Don't know if it would mention parishes though.

Sorry if that's not much help!
