There were memorial services for him in both Manchester and London. His cremated remains were interred here with those of his parents in South Ealing Cemetery on 13 July 1961. His estate was valued at £183,955 most of which was inherited by his cousin Rosalind's son, Mathew Prichard. His home in London was bequeathed to his aunt Agatha Christie.
He was elected at the 1959 general election as Member of Parliament for Manchester Moss Side, but died in office two years later, aged 57. His aunt was Dame Agatha Christie, who dedicated several books to him, including The Secret of Chimneys (1925).

Following a memorial service in St. Mary's parish church, Cheadle, she was privately cremated; in November, her remains were interred in the grave of her godmother Margaret Miller.
