Cavanagh was educated at Cambridge where he studied law. He went to Canada where he joined the Royal Northwest Mounted Police. After serving in World War I, he returned to Canada but eventually went back to England to practise law.

He went onto the stage after a stroke of bad luck in 1924 caused him to lose his savings, and later he went into films. He died in 1964, aged 75.
