Narrative:
Auster J/1 Autrocrat [MSN 1962]: First civil registered (C of R.9815/1; C of A 7370) as G-AGXM on 22/1/1946 to T. MacDonald Ltd., Leven, Fife. Registration cancelled/lapsed upon sale 25/6/1947

Sold on and re-registered (C of R 9815/2) 3/7/1947 to Robert George Parker, Edinburgh, Lothian.

Written off (damaged beyond repair) on 12/7/53: Auster J/1 Autocrat G-AGXM crashed at Loch Leven, east of the burgh of Kinross in Perth and Kinross. In an Air Britain publication dated 12/9/53, it was reported that it was salvaged from the Loch, and taken to Perth/Scone Airport.

The registration G-AGXM was cancelled by the Air Ministry on 28/7/1953 as "PWFU". ("Permanently Withdrawn From Use"). I suspect, though I am unable to prove it, that the aircraft that was dismantled at Perth in September 1954 was more likely to have been G-AGXM than G-AGXY.
