I haven't a clue, to be honest.  If I were looking for information, though, I'd say a good place to start would be the internet - wikipedia provides thorough coverage, for instance: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gallipoli_Campaign

Naval Operations Volume II the Official History details the ships and losses to the Royal Navy in the Dardanelles Campaign

https://archive.org/details/navaloperations00newbgoog/page/n8

 

In addition there were lighters, hospital ships etc

 

There are any number of decent books on the campaign, or as noted above wikipedia will give a good overview and bibliography.

 

Your question is ambiguous, do you mean Naval Personnel?  Do you mean total combatants on both sides?

On the Allied side, 'Statistics' breaks down British Empire army casualties as Regular Army, Territorial Force, Australian, New Zealand, Newfoundland and Indian 'native'.

The French army and navy were also engaged.

The Royal Naval contribution to land forces consisted of 2 Brigades of the Royal Naval Division. Each Brigade consisted of 4 Battalions so 8 in total. Each Battalion was approximately 800 men. So Naval land forces were initially approx 6400. In addition there were eventually 4 Battalions of RMLI, Plymouth, Chatham, Portsmouth and Deal adding approximately another 3200 men making a total of 9600.  I’ve no idea how many sea going sailors were committed.
