Does anyone know any good sources of information about German PoW camps in the UK during WWI?

I'm trying to trace the route of the 76th Hanseatic regiment from the Battle of Arras, where it was pretty much wiped out, to Oswestry where I believe many of the captured remnants were transported to.

I've been in touch with the Bundes-thingy but all the relevant records were destroyed in a mysterious fire. In 1945. In Dresden.

I've also been in touch with the national archive but it's possible I spoke to the wrong person because whoever it was I spoke to just tried to gouge money out of money.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
