British Army Regiments Engaged in the War by Division

The original Crimean War period title of the regiment, with abbreviation, is shown first, followed by the modern title of the unit into which the identity of the regiment has been absorbed – often through multiple amalgamations over the years. The Divisional organisation is correct as at 1st April, 1856.

All Divisions also had Royal Artillery, Royal Engineers, and Royal Sappers and Miners attached. Three Crimean regiments have not been perpetuated in the modern British Army; they were the 18th Foot, 88th Foot, and 90th Foot.
