After the war, Moorsom studied psychology at University College, London. He married Ann Thomson, a South African, in 1923, and they had three children. Moorsom had inherited money and had no need to work; he spent his days entertaining Bloomsbury friends and travelling. In the Second World War, Moorsom went to live with Elliott Felkin in New York; when he was unable to receive funds from England he worked as a taxi driver. On his return to England, he returned to his pre-war life, visiting Felkin in France and returning to the Lake District. He died on 9 June 1981.
