1917 wedding in Derby Army barracks help needed

Hi all,
I wonder if anyone can shed any light on the latest info I have found......? My grandfather Henry Jones is listed on his marriage cert to Mary Ellen Jones ( Shackleton ) as getting married on 14th July 1917, he is listed as Soldier, married at the Parish church, Parish of st John Derby, his residence was army barracks Derby....aged 24, that would place his birth at around 1893, both he and my grandmother were born in Rochdale Lancs.....I have tried to find his army record with no luck......until this week I didn't even know he was a soldier......the only barracks I have been able to find are Normanton and Rowditch barracks.....any help greatly appreciated.......thanks ......Paul
