The 1911 census will tell you where they were living in that year.  For the later years you could either get birth certificates for the children born after 1911 or check the electoral rolls.

You are fortunate that his service records were in the less than 40% of records that survved the bombing/fire/water damage in WW11.
He was married in the Clowne parish church. His address at time of attestation I can't decipher!! 70 ??? Lane.
He was discharged in Dec 1915 as not fit for further service.
In 1939 he was working underground in a colliery.
ancestry has free access at the moment but today is the last day you can access the full records.
In 1918 he was at 6 Annesley Road Hucknall

I think the address in the military record may be 70 Westfield Lane.Certainly the ending "...field" looks to be the same as in Mansfield,and I can find examples of Westfield or West Field Lane in the census.

Thank you all for your help - You have answered my question, the whereabouts between them getting married in 1908 and up to 1920 were confusing.......My mother Beatrice was their 4th child born February 18th 1920, I know of the family whereabouts after that date....Many thanks to you all....
