Burial of Sir John Moore, 1809 Corunna Spain Peninsular War

An old letter from my uncle (long deceased) says that our ancestor, William Mills, was a member of the burial party for his General, Sir John Moore, who was killed in the battle of Corunna in the Napoleonic Wars. There are many accounts of this event on various websites, as well as the well known poem, but I can't find any list of the names of the soldiers who were members of his burial party. Does anyone know if such a record exists? My uncle's letter says he was doing research in a library but doesn't name specific sources.
