I have recently become aware there may be more information on more names of English troops and other aggressors and thier numbers above the list compiled by Sir Thomas Erpingham's in the Battle of Agincourt Honor Roll. Any information for a point of contact and contact information for these researchers would be much appreciated.

The National Archives stores surviving musters relating to the Agincourt campaign.
Try searching TNA's catalogue
enter 'muster' in the first field , limit dates to 1400-1420 and enter E101 in the department or series code.
There won't be many names mentioned in the index, but you'll get an idea of what little survives.
Tudor heralds produced a list of those present at the battle. This was printed in the 'History of the Battle of Agincourt'. It is thought that the earliest surviving list upon which this printed source relied is held by the Bodleian Library, Oxford - Ashmolean MS 825 folios 15-35 the list being compiled by Rober Glover. The other two surviving copies being held by the College of Arms and The British Library. If interested in the battle, try reading 'The Battle of Agincourt - Sources and Interpretations' by Anne Curry. Boydell press. ISBN 0 85115 802 1.
