slightly off census but you can sometimes find an absent voters list that will list soldiers absent through service, please see the part of the list for Haydock

Basically as far as WW1 men are concerned , no, as the cenuses were conducted in 1911 and 1921. Neither of these will be available online for a few years either. You may glean information from birth and marriage cetificates though, I found from my G Uncle wedding certificate that he was in 183 Tunneling Company RE.

If you know a soldiers' home address try looking for him in the 1919 Absent Voters List. These are held in County Record Offices and give a name, rank, regiment and number, but only if the soldier was 19 or older in late 1918.
