Craig was educated at Bedford School and as a classical scholar at Peterhouse, Cambridge. He was called to the Bar in 1892, appointed King's Counsel in 1909, and as a Bencher of the Inner Temple in 1919.
In January 1910, he was elected as a Member of Parliament for the Isle of Thanet, and was re-elected in 1918.
In 1912, he booked a passage to America on board the RMS Titanic. However, he cancelled his trip and was not on board when the vessel sank on 15 April. He cancelled his trip at such short notice that his name still appeared on the printed list of the Titanic's first-class passengers. This led to early newspaper reports that he was among the victims of the sinking.
In 1918, Craig married Dorothy Stone of Hoylake. He died on 14 October 1919 after failing to recover from an unspecified operation.
