ar­chive.org/ de­tails/ wa­ter­looroll­cal­l00­dal­tuoft There are lots of digi­tised his­tory books avail­able through ar­chive. org, cov­er­ing all kinds of Napoleonic sub­jects. You can read and down­load ac­counts of Nelson’s death, bat­tles on sea and land, or this edi­tion of the Water­loo Roll Call from 1904. It’s a Who’s Who of the bat­tle, with all kinds of ‘bi­o­graph­i­cal notes and anec­dotes’, but not just re­lat­ing to the great and good. For ex­am­ple, there’s Colour Sergeant Jonathan Thomas of the 23rd Reg­i­ment of Foot, whose brief en­try records sim­ply that he died at the Union Work­house, Swansea, in De­cem­ber 1867.
