QUERY: Ottoman POWs in Burma/Myanmar in WWI

I am assisting a group with a research project which has a tight deadline. I thought asking for assistance from list members might save a few steps and lead me in the most productive direction.

I am trying to find out the exact number of Ottoman prisoners of war interned by the British in prison camps in Burma/Myanmar during World War One. More specifically, along with complete numbers of prisoners of war, I am interested in mortality statistics for each camp and where the dead might have been buried.
