After nearly a two-year break from first-class cricket, Cadell returned in 1927 to play for the Royal Navy against the touring New Zealanders. 1927 also saw Cadell make a single appearance for the Free Foresters against Oxford University. That same year Cadell made his debut for the Marylebone Cricket Club in two University matches against Oxford University and Cambridge. Cadell played a further two matches that year for the Royal Navy against the Army and the Royal Air Force.
Cadell died on 14 May 1928 from injuries he sustained the previous night in a road traffic accident, succumbing to his injuries at Petersfield Cottage Hospital in Hampshire. Cadell was just 28 when he was killed.
Cadell's great-uncle Vernon Royle represented Lancashire, Oxford University and the Marylebone Cricket Club in first-class cricket. Royle also represented England in a single Test match against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in 1879.
