Bronson Battersby facts: Age, Parents, cause of death and more revealed

Bronson Battersby was tragically found curled up dead next to his dad Kenneth – who died of a heart attack – two weeks after they were last seen.

A social worker visited their home in Skegness, Lincolnshire on January 2, for a routine visit but received no reply and contacted the police.

They visited again on January 4 but again there was no response. The social worker contacted the police again that day.

Shockingly the bodies of Kenneth and Bronson – who was classed as vulnerable and was being checked on weekly – were not found until January 9 when the social worker herself used a key from the landlord to get into the home.

Bronson Battersby was the son of Sarah Piesse and Kenneth Battersby. He tragically died in January 2024 when he was just two years old.

He could also often be found playing his Little Tykes drum kit and loved nursery rhymes.

Bronson was classified as vulnerable by social services, which meant he received weekly visits.

Bronson Battersby mother-

The toddler’s mother, Sarah Piesse, 43, last saw her son before Christmas after a row with her ex.

She told The Sun: ‘If social services had done their job Bronson would still be alive. But they didn’t do anything.

I can’t believe it. They can’t let them get away with this. We have to be able to rely on social workers to keep our children safe.’

‘I’ve had the results of the post mortem. Bronson starved to death because his dad died. They think Kenneth died no earlier than December 29.

‘It means if the social worker had pushed to get in when she got no reply on January 2 then Bronson would still have been alive.’

On Facebook, Bronson’s sister Melaniie Battersby wrote: ‘Beautiful little boy deserved so much better than this life. We love you Bronson, forever a part of us, and forever my baby brother.’

Adding her ‘head and heart’ were ‘in pieces’, she said: ‘A lot of anger inside at minute when I just want to remember his little smile and soft nature instead. He were perfect.’

Mother-of-three Sarah last saw Bronson after getting into an argument with Kenneth before Christmas.

A friend of the family said the toddler enjoyed watching the Cocomelon, adored nursery rhymes and often played his Little Tykes drum kit.
