Roland was born in London the son of artist Bernard Batchelor who insisted that he get a steady job. Although he started to paint very young he worked in the Civil Service for over forty years.

When he retired from the Civil Service in 1949 he studied at City and Guilds of London School under A R Middleton Todd. He exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy and the Royal Watercolour Society. Roland was elected a member of the RWS in 1966. His work is held by the Victoria and Albert Museum.
