How did the widows of Waterloo cope?

Having just recently read one of the Derbyshire Writer's Guild fanfics which involved Lydia moving in with Elizabeth after Wickham had been killed in battle -- *and* after reading Georgette Heyer's "An Infamous Army" with thousands of soldiers and officers killed at Waterloo ... I wondered: would all of the women moved back in with family? or gone street-begging/finding another profession? or taken care of by some sort of charity??
