Forest miners going to Wigan (Parish Records)

Has anyone else had family members going from the Forest to Wigan in Lancs to be a miner between 1871 & 1901 ?
My great Grandfather, Joseph Peart went to Wigan between the 1871 census and the 1901 census with his wife and 2 children. They lived in a few different addresses during that time. He was listed as a miner on the census's so were the children, when old enough. His wife's father James Lewis died in 1895, so I am assuming they returned around that time as she was an only child, to look after her mother.
Any information would be appreciated.
