His death was reported as “unexplained but not suspicious”.

West London’s Coroners informed The Mirror: “The Coroner’s investigation into Archie’s death has been discontinued and no inquest will be required.”

Nicholas and Lucy laid their son Archie to rest at a tiny chapel in November.

Shortly after his death, Nicholas released a statement that read: “Lucy and I are utterly grief stricken and respectfully request privacy.”

Archie’s mother wrote a heartfelt message on Instagram just days after his death was announced: “It is with the heaviest heart that I write this post. Nine weeks ago our dearest boy Archie was taken from us way too early. We still have no answer as to what happened but wait patiently for the report to be written up in the next 10 weeks.

“The pain of our loss is beyond anything we have ever felt before, and wouldn’t wish upon anyone. Archie was, and remains our absolute world. He was the most beautiful extraordinary human being we have ever known. To have him as our son has been nothing but an utter joy and honour.

“Tonight at 6pm Nick and I shall be with him in a tiny chapel to send him on the first part of his next journey. If you get a moment maybe you’d like to light a candle or take a minute just to remember him. We’ve never known anyone live like Archie. He cherished and absorbed every moment he had.

“Until we meet again our darling magical boy. We will love you forever and ever and will be forever grateful for choosing us to be your parents. We were beyond lucky. Thank you for every smile, hug, laugh, conversation we loved them all. Your kindness and generosity knew no bounds.

Many tributes came in for Archie including a statement from the representatives of CBBC who shared a post reading: “We’re so sorry to have to tell you that Archie Lyndhurst, who so brilliantly played Ollie in So Awkward on CBBC, has very sadly died after a short illness.

“Archie will be hugely missed by all who worked with him, and by all the fans who laughed along with Ollie in the show.”

    So, so awful to bury your child, whatever age. I can’t begin to know what his parents have gone through, but I hope and pray they find solace in being his parents and having shared 19 years with him, and, in time, peace.
    God Bless

    What a ridiculous over dramatised article! The inquest has not been abandoned, there was no inquest to start with! It was an investigation by the Coroner. The coroner has confirmed no inquest is required. You continue to just repeat all the quotes from when this poor lad died. Clearly this young man died of a natural cause of death.
