Graham Thorpe was born in Farnham, Surrey, in August 1969, as the third and final son of three sons.

Thorpe, who was born right-handed, modified his stance when he was six years old to make it more difficult for his two elder brothers to get him out and because the boundary in his backyard was shorter on the leg-side for a left-hander.
