About Us

William Kirk (Kirke) was born in Wick, Caithness, Scotland on January 25, 1839. Upon arrival in Maryborough in 1865, Kirk took over the business of Dann and Co. upholsterer and cabinetmakers. The business was located in Adelaide Street, Maryborough near The Central Hotel. A year later, Kirk conducted his first funeral for a John Tinkler who had died in an accident in October 1866.
