Records of the time were poor and there was no such thing as census so it is speculated the losses could be as high as 2 million, there are no records or numbers of wounded.

This is made more difficult in that the revolution happened while Russia was fighting in WW1 at the same time so records become more confused

    Surprisingly very few. The storming of the Winter Palace – the event that put the Bolsheviks in power was remarkably bloodless. During the following civil war many hundreds of thousands did die.
