On 691 James Wentzell (2 l's) the four references you have are to be found on Findmypast.  1871 is simply the census, WO121 is the register of discharges, WO97 is his discharge document, the latter is the most informative.  The 1861 is the same man serving first in the 17th Lancers (East Indies = India) transferring later to the 20th Hussars.

Albert later unless someone else finds him first.

The Familysearch result is a reference to a Merchant Navy record also on Findmypast but his dob would appear to be 1834 in London.  The National Archives document is BT 116/99.

Nothing more I'm afraid than you have already  -  it is transcribed on Findmypast.   Probably worth contacting the Manchester and Lancs FH Society who hold the copyright.
