Just had a look at this gentleman's 1901 census form and it clearly states Fireman, Fire brigade, I think they put Fire Brigade as not to confuse with Fireman ie stoker or someone who supplies a boiler with coal. Can I ask what leads you to think he was an engineer.

You can look some up in the library (central). You can also access them by joining ancestry but it ain't cheap.

On the 1911 Census form he describes his occupation as "Fire Brigade Engineer", living at 14 Dale Street, Birkenhead.
