From the Families in British India Society (

Transcribed entries for nearly 10,000 soldiers have been uploaded to the FIBIS database website. The details come from the Registers of Bengal Army European Soldiers for 1790-1839 (IOR/L/MIL/10/122-123) in the India Office Records at the British Library, The registers give full personal details of enlisted men, including casualties, in a rougly alphabetical arrangement in date order of arrival in Bengal. They were compiled at East India House, mainly from the Muster Rolls.
