Cazenove’s agent Lesley Duff, released a statement on behalf of his family and long-time girlfriend Isabel Davies:
“Christopher died peacefully surrounded by his loved ones having contracted septicemia at the end of February. Despite a valiant fight and the untiring efforts of the wonderful team at St Thomas, he was overwhelmed. All who knew and loved him will be devastated by the loss of this incredible man.”

*Septicemia: (also septicaemia or septicæmia or erroneously septasemia and septisema) is a related but deprecated (formerly sanctioned) medical term referring to the presence of pathogenic organisms in the bloodstream, leading to sepsis. The term has not been sharply defined. It has been inconsistently used in the past by medical professionals, for example as a synonym of bacteremia, causing some confusion. The present medical consensus is therefore that the term “septicemia” is problematic and should be avoided. [source]
