Tracing my Grandfather-Frederick Lee

I desperately need some help finding my grandad. All I have is a Wedding Certificate and the fact he was in the RHA(Royal Horse Artillery) Kings Troop. I have his Army Attestment Date of Joining when he was 19 which it says 1903( he was a shoemaker, however census information shows 1902 for Frederick Lee. He originated from Burton on Trent and that was where my father was born in 1929. However he died when my father was about 4-6 years old about. I have found a Frederick dying in 1934 but not sure whether it is him. Will a death certificate show an address?
The marriage certificate shows his fathers name of John Jack Charles Lee but I cannot find him or my grandad on 1911 census, which I should be able to do. I have twice made applications for birth certificate and ended up with the same one with parents name being incorrect. He was born in the Parish of St Pauls in Burton on Trent.
I am at my wits end and do not know which direction to go in. I lost my father 13 years ago so can obtain no information other than what I have. I have even checked on various genealogy website and unable to find my great grandad listed either. Not with a full name.
Could someone please advise me what to do next
