    I have a 6 Volt Lantern battery (UK type) which is labelled as,
    "Zinc Chloride".

    Does this mean that it is the traditional Zinc/Carbon cell with
    Sal-Ammoniac chemiclas?

    Also, if I were to alkali batteries, what would I find inside? I only
    ask because in my youth, the carbon rods were very useful, and
    wondered, before I poison myself, if there were to be anything
    useful in the modern cells.

    It's most likely a standard carbon zinc battery. Even if it were an
    alkaline battery, there is nothing particularly toxic inside, just don't
    eat it and wash your hands when you finish.
