Default Bf-110 lost on 7th October 1940

Trying to find the identity and crew of a BF-110 shot down by John Bisdee of 609 squadron on 7/10/40 flying Spitfire X4560. The combat report states that he followed the aircraft down and saw it crash at Cerne Abbas.
Spitfire X4560 was lost in a mid air collision over Edinburgh in September 1941.

Any information would be welcome.

In Mason's Battle over Britain page 436 is een overview of the Bf 110 losses of that day.
See appendix.

Apologies for not replying earlier as I have been sailing the West Coast of Scotland.
Thanks for the table of Luftwaffe losses for 7th October. I am still trying to tie in the aircraft shot down by john Bisdee as his combat report states that the aircraft came down at "Cerne Abbas" with the initial attack taking place "North of Portland".

Thanks again,
