The only idea that springs to mind is if the electoral register is checked for your grandfather.

Maybe the Isle of Wight Records Office would be able to help you with that. See here: http://www.iow.gov.uk/library/record_office/

Good luck!

A large library or county record office should hold sets of 'Crockford's Clerical Directories', which list clergy, parishes etc. Someone might be able to look up for you. Any IoW people here to say how many CofE churches there are/were?
