Chamberlain resigned the premiership on 10 May 1940 and ill health forced him to leave office as Lord President of the Council in Churchill's government in October 1940, and he died soon afterwards on 9th November, 1940.

The greatest example of not going to the Lords is Winston Churchill. I believe he turned down a Dukedom.
