He was the business partner of Scrooge
He is Scrooge's partner, his sole administrator, his sole assign, etc. It's in the book on the bottom of the first page. I don't know when he died, I'm trying to figure that o…ut too.
It is never made completely clear EXACTLY what business they engage in, but it seems to involve finances (perhaps lending). Dickens refers to his place of business as a "count…ing house."
Marley represented the outcome of not putting mankind first
Marley warned Scrooge to change his miserly ways.
Marley in his pigtail, usual waistcoat , tights, and boots; thetassels on the latter bristling, like his pigtail, and hiscoat-skirts, and the hair upon his head. The chain he …drew wasclasped about his middle. It was long, and wound about him like atail; and it was made (for Scrooge observed it closely) ofcash-boxes, keys, padlocks, ledgers, deeds, and heavy purseswrought in steel. His body was transparent; so that Scrooge,observing him, and looking through his waistcoat, could see the twobuttons on his coat behind.

A toothpick. Scrooge challenged Marley's Ghost with the thought that swallowing the toothpick would make the ghost disappear. When Marley shrieked in response, Scrooge finally… came around to believing Marley was there.
In Charles Dickens' classic tale "A Christmas Carol," the ghost ofJacob Marley visits his former friend and partner Ebeneezer Scroogelate on Christmas Eve. No year is given, b…ut the novella waspublished in 1843 and appears to be a more or less contemporarystory. The other three spirits were, according to Marley, to have visitedScrooge every night for three successive nights beginning that veryevening at midnight. However, after the manifestations have passed,Scrooge discovers to his delight that they concluded their businessall on the same evening, so that it is only Christmas morning whenthe last vision ends.
They were business partners until Marley died.
