There are different types of blood cells in the human body i.e. red blood cells, neutrophils, basophils, eosinophils, monocytes, T-cells, B-cells.

What are the cellular components of these cells? What are the organelles that are found in these cells? I can't find this information anywhere.

It's pretty straightforward. White blood cells have all the usual organelles while mature red blood cells are missing most of them. WBC can have specialized lysosomes depending on their function, as well as granules if they are granulocytes.
