That would be a rather diffcult one to put together as there was no difinitive list of those who took part in the charge. Generally it was members of the 4th and 11th Regiments but it was not all of the regiment in each case due to other operations and detachments at the time,,,,,,, also remember that the charge was just the climax of an operation which involved many thousands of men and horses from a number of nations,,,, it sometimes gets a little bit over the top the way this charge is idealised and mytholigised.
