Dear Paul:

I'm half asleep, but I can tell you that you will need a little bit more information than that to make much headway.

The British initially sent about 27,000 men to the Crimea,and with replacements I think the total was somewhere up around 100,000.

Frank and Andrea Cook compiled the "Casualty Roll for the Crimea 1854 to 1856" from despatches published in the London Gazette and you can buy a copy from used booksellers on the internet, but it is 239 pages long, not alphabetized, and often only gives a first initial and a name---but it does list most of those who were casualties during the war.
