Conze was married twice: to Dorothea Finkelstein and to Muriel Green. He had one daughter with Dorothea.

A glance at a complete bibliography of Conze's oeuvre confirms that he was a man of industry and focus. His contribution to the field of Buddhist Studies, particularly of the Prajñāpāramitā literature, has had a major influence on subsequent generations.
