There is not a complete record of those who took part in the charge! While it may be possible from records to estimate who died in the charge, it would also be necessary to include all those who took part in the action on the day........ it was not an action carried out by 800 light horsemen by themselves.... they were part of a massive action and while they certainly closed the action of the day, they were only part of that action. It does not pay to make supermen out of one section of a large force!!
