Victims of Cawnpore, Civilians

As I have previously done for Lucknow, I am including a list of names of the Cawnpore garrison. The list I am referring to from Shepherd's book but some descriptions are from other sources. The lists are divided into three sections: civilians, railway (including telegraph etc) and military.
In italics are the victims of the Bibigarh massacre on the 15th of July.
