In KV 35 they found:

No 61069 Amenhotep II Son of Tuthmosis III and Matshepsut Merytre. The king had been tall for his times and stood at 1.8 m (6 ft)--much taller than either his father or son. His body is that of a robust, strongly built individual.
No 61070 Anonymous "Elder Woman" Some thinkthis woman is Tiye, the wife of Amenhetep III. This is based on the fact that her hair matches a lock found in the tomb of Tutankhamen. The lock of hair was kept in a box with Tiye’s name on it.
No 61071 An anonymous young boy. Some thought he was Webensenu, a son of Amenhotep II.
No 61072 Anonymous young man (previously thought to be a young woman)
No 61073 Tuthmosis IV, Son of Amenhotep II and Tiaa.
No 61074 Amenhotep III, Son of Tuthmosis IV and Queen Mutemwia
No 61079 Merenptah, Son of Ramses II and Queen Isetnofret
No 61080 Siptah, Possibly the son of King Amenmesse.
No 61081 Sety II, The son of Merneptah and Queen Isetnofret.
No 61082 Unknown Woman D (Tawosret?) She was a wife of Seti II, regent for Siptah and later king in her own right.
No 61084 Rameses IV, Son of Ramses III and Queen Iset (ta Hemdjert)
No 61085 Rameses V, Son of Ramses IV and Queen (Dua)Tentopet.
No 61086 Rameses VI, Son of Ramses III and Queen Iset (ta Hemdjert)

These cache listings are pretty cool, Osiris. :)

Did you have a reference, so curious patrons such as myself could see what other informationthere might be?

They are taken from another Egyptian forum I belong to--www.egyptiandreams.com/chat. I think they were originally posted on www.touregypt.com.

Well, I compiled those lists (I'm also a member of that other forum ;)).
[And it would be nice if you would give me credit for my work ...]

The information is mainly taken from Dennis Forbses' book Tombs, Mummies and Treasures.

A lot of the information on the web is a little shaky.

It is also based on the wonderful site by William Max Miller

Follow the links to the individual mummies.

The book I mentioned is :
Tombs, treasures, mummies: Seven great discoveries of Egyptian archaeology by Dennis C Forbes

Forbes outlines the discoveries of the tombs of Maiherpri, Kha and Merit, Yuya and Tuya, Tutankhamen, and the discovery of the two caches.

There are very nice photographs of the mummies, and a discussion of the important facts.
There is also a nice write up about the "musical mummies" :D
It seems that the identification of several mummies are not 100% sure.

It's a great book!
