Pascal,

There were followers of the Jewish faith in the British Army, I can think of one killed at Isandlwana, and his brother came out with the replacement draft of the 1st/24th.

The 24th were English in the main, with a significant proportion of Welshmen and Irishmen.
In the main, these would therefore be CofE, CofW and Catholics.
The vast majority would have given a religion on enlistment; I believe that unlike today, very few would have given "no religion" back in the mid to late 1800s.
As Chard says, a good research project, for someone who cares about this kind of thing. I am guessing that in general, the soldiers' religions would reflect the demographics prevailing tthe time from their places of enlistment.
