There are 2 baptisms on familyserch that say residence Neepsend but nothing in the baptism place. Should I assume they were baptised at St Michael & All Angels, or could they have been baptised elsewhere?
Clara Ann Shearing - 3 Feb 1897
William Henry Shearing - 31 Aug 1898.
I would say you are probably correct in saying those 1897 & 98
baptisms took place at St Michael & All Angels it was the Parish Church of Neepsend. Or should I say was until it was demolished for road widening in 1955.
Claire, I had this site sent to me today, I was unaware of it. At the moment its only set for Baptisms.
Just entering Shearing your two relatives came up, It shows Clara Ann, entry # 38 West Brightside, and William Henry entry # 51 Sheffield West.

Re: 2 Baptisms on Familysearch
The site you have mentioned Barry is the transcriptions pages for the Sheffield register office.These are not Baptisms but they are from the birth registers.
We (S&DFHS) are transcribing the birth indexes for Sheffield register office. These are taken from the original entries, so are more accurate than the GRO reference.
You have only quoted the district and page number you would also require the register number to apply for the birth certificate. Year of birth defaults to 01/01/1897 this does not mean that she was born 1st of January 1897, but she was born in 1897.
District: West Brightside (a sub-district of Sheffield)
Birth - Register number 1 Page 38
Details: Clara Ann SHEARING - 1897
