Hi

According to Familysearch.org
George Daniell Kenworthy Clowes age 29, father George Kenworthy, married Clara Beatrice Kenworthy, father George Kenworthy, 5th Sept 1905 at West Kirby. Findmypast has the image of the marriage and it might be worth accessing it.

Looking at the 1881 census George D K Clowes father could be George Kenworthy Clowes and the fathers surname has been missed on either the marriage registration or transcription.

Given that George D K father was born Liverpool and Clara born Egremont, and the proliferation of the name Kenworthy, I wonder if they were related.

Hi

I read the 1901 address as 11 Green Bank Rd (today Greenbank Rd)

According to the 1891 censua Hilda was born Egremont and the 1881 census says born Wallasey, could the 1901 census actually say Liscard?
