Location of loss of 7 Squadron Lancaster ND353, 22-23 April 1944 Düsseldorf raid?

Dear all,

Who can give me the exact location of loss of 7 Squadron Lancaster ND353 during the 22-23 April 1944 Düsseldorf raid? The aircraft was attacked over target by a night fighter and partially abandoned, three of the crew being killed and first buried at Grevenbroich. Info on the time of the night fighter attack and ToT of 7 Squadron would also be helpful.

Cheers, Theo
