He graduated from Owen's College, Manchester, M.B., Ch.B. with honours in 1899 and proceeded M.D. (with commendation) in 1909. He practiced at Preston Royal Infirmary for over 40 years and was a pioneer in radiology. Rayner joined the R.A.M.C. in the first world war and saw much service in the Middle East.
