Martin and Annalize Piek, with their children, Martilize and Wjm, founded Mar†in’s Funerals in November 1989. They had their first funeral only in March 1990.
Welcome to Martin’s Funerals.
Martin gave a small office space to his wife at the back of his first business, Penny Shop, only to bring in an extra income. Within a few months, Mar†in’s Funerals expanded drastically, causing them to close Penny Shop to cope with the demands of Mar†in’s Funerals.
Through the grace of God, the company relocated to premises in 1st Street, Randfontein, which also consisted of a single long office, but this time it included a small kitchen. At this stage there were enough funds saved to build a cooling facility on their farm, outside Randfontein.
