If they survived then I suspect their service record maybe the only place. If they died CWGC may give nok address . If the nok is parent it is possible they lived with them. If married before enlistment then that should be correct addres.

On His Discharge paper Arnold Shearim 966 Royal Fusiliers & 371837 Labour Corps has the address 13 Bridge Avenue Hammersmith London , you can see this on Find My Past.

Casualty lists seem to give towns of enlistment, I think up to about 1916.

Assuming they were wounded of course.

A directive was issued around May 1916 that they give 'place of residence' (town/village etc) although, frustratingly, the Times ones did not comply until the end of the year.
