Cardew died in West Sussex, on 30 November 1992. He left an estate not exceeding £125,000.


He served as a war correspondent during the Second World War reporting from the home front and abroad where he had several narrow escapes as a result of working too close to the front line. After the war, he was the motoring and air correspondent for the Express and was a well known figure at motor racing events and airshows in the 1940s and 50s. He was the editor of the reviews of the paper's motor show published annually from the 1950s to the 1970s.


Cardew's journalistic career began at the Press Association. Early in his career he saw the land speed record attempts of Malcolm Campbell, who he was close to, and the water speed attempt of Henry Segrave in 1930 in which Segrave was killed. He joined the Daily Express in 1933 when Arthur Christiansen took over as editor and began to revamp the paper, resulting in a large increase in circulation. His early stories for the paper included attending the divorce hearing of Wallace and Ernest Simpson.
