I'm new here. Though I've completed the grid, I could use help with understanding a few of the clues in a cryptic crossword. This is a British-style cryptic (a type I'm not overly familiar with.)

"Being perhaps unconscious, missing drink with jam and bread?" - answer NOTI. I see how "missing drink with jam and bread" works as wordplay, but I don't get the literal definition. There is no indication that the answer is 2 words or hyphenated.

"British composer who's hell for a blind man?" - answer ADES. I'd understand if it said "hell for a Cockney man"...
