On his death the house was sold and became a school. It was demolished and rebuilt in 1951–5. British History Online have more details of these buildings.

During part of his career he had a summer house in Lytham St Annes, close to his home town of Liverpool, from whence came the name of his Kensington house. The good people of Lytham have returned the compliment by naming an area of their town Ansdell.
