Moving on from the 1911 census

I have had some success with the 1911 census in that I found out my grandfather had two sisters, at the time. The youngest being 1. This makes me think there are more children.

Apart from trawling through the parish records (which I am a long way from), has anyone any thoughts on how I could find whether my grandfather's parents had more children?

Many thanks,
