The funeral business is all Mark’s ever known, his grandfather was a funeral director in Brandon so I guess it was always in his blood. On reaching the age of 13, he started sweeping the floors in the funeral office of Harvey Adam, the local funeral director at the time and someone who Mark has a lot to thank, for at 16 he took Mark on full-time. Mark bought the business from Harvey when he was 23 and although it doesn’t seem possible to him, he has now been in the business for 37 years!
When Mark first started in the business it was mostly building and carpentry with the occasional funeral, however, over the years things have changed dramatically especially within the funeral industry.
Funerals in the main used to be very traditional and although traditional funerals are still carried out, the business is receiving more and more unpredictable requests from people, which quite often result in the art of surprise.
