What was the British Death Toll in World War 1 or World War 1?

Britain suffered the following losses in WWI:

Great Britain:
Dead: 750,000
Seriously Injured: 1,500,000
Claiming Disability: 2,500,000
Shell Shock Victims: 65,000

Note that if casualties from the entire British empire are included (India, etc.) the death toll rises to 947,023. This is part of the total death toll of the war which is generally agreed to be around 8 million, but has been cited to be as high as 10 million. Britain suffered many fewer casualties than other nations in the war, but compared to overall population, its losses were quite significant.
