Boer War Soldier

I have the same problem as Magpie, my grandfather James Marsden from Wigan in Lancashire is on the 1901 census as being in Chatham Barracks in Kent aged 18. He then pops up in 1907 where he marries my grandmother Mary Ann Williams, in Seaham, Durham where he is a miner. I too have hit a brickwall as I live in Australia and therefore not able to get to Kew to look in the National Archives. Does anybody have any other suggestions of where you can look up Boer War soldiers that returned to England.
