Trooper Sergeant Major William Bentley

I am trying to find out about my great great Grandfather William Bentley who served in the 11th Hussars and fought in the ‘Charge of the Light Brigade’. He was saved from death by Major Dunn who subsequently received the V.C. for his valour.
I know William is buried in York Cemetery (he appears as part of their Military Trail) He died on March 1st 1891.
