How Did James Brokenshire Die? – Cause of Death

Northern Ireland Secretary and Home Office minister James Brokenshire, aged 53 has died on October 7, 2021.

The former government minister and Conservative MP for Old Bexley and Sidcup James Brokenshire, who had lung cancer, has died aged 53, his
family have said.

Brokenshire died on Thursday evening with his family at his bedside, and had been in hospital since Sunday. In September, he confirmed the lung cancer had “progressed” and he was starting a new line of treatment.

In a statement, his family said:


“It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of James Brokenshire MP at the age of 53. James died peacefully at Darent Valley hospital yesterday evening with family members by his bedside. He had been in hospital since Sunday after his condition rapidly deteriorated.

“James was not only a brilliant government minister as both security and immigration minister at the Home Office and secretary of state at the Northern Ireland Office and Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government, but a dedicated constituency MP, first for Hornchurch from 2005 to 2010, and then for Old Bexley and Sidcup for the past 11 years.

“But most importantly, he was a loving father to his three children, a devoted husband to Cathy and a faithful friend to so many. We would like to thank all the NHS staff, particularly those at Guy’s and St Thomas’ in London, who cared for James with such warmth, diligence and professionalism over the past three and a half years.

“We would also ask that our privacy as a family is respected at this time.”
