He was the third of seven children, the eldest being Sir Thornley Stoker, 1st Bt.. Bram's parents were members of the Church of Ireland Parish of Clontarf and attended the parish church, which is where Bram and his siblings were baptized.
An unknown illness kept Bram from starting school until he was seven years old, the age when he made a full recovery. Of this time, Stoker wrote, "I was naturally thoughtful, and the leisure of long illness gave opportunity for many thoughts which were fruitful according to their kind in later years."
After surviving a number of strokes, Stoker died at No. 26 St George's Square on 20 April 1912. He was cremated, and his ashes placed in a display urn at Golders Green Crematorium.
Google honored Bram Stoker with a Google Doodle on their homepage on 8 November 2012, Bram's 165th birthday.
