Who We Are


Thomas Nock Martin can trace its roots back to 1905, when founder Thomas Nock (1875-1940) decided that work as a clerk in local tube works wasn’t what he wanted from life.  Nock noticed that whilst the Black Country was the industrial heart of Britain its financial services were largely under serviced. Spotting the gap in the market was the easy part but Nock realised that in order to succeed he needed a professional qualification. Therefore, rather late in life (30), he became articled to Arthur Mason of Dudley paying Mason the princely sum of fifty two pounds and ten shillings for the privilege - a staggering £30k in today’s money!

Once qualified Nock set up on his own, looking after the book-keeping and accountancy affairs of local chain makers, iron founders, brewers and galvanisers, and his practice quickly flourished. 

In 1939 Thomas Nock’s nephew, Burt Nock (1913-1976), joined him as his partner and there is a continuing Nock family presence at the firm to this day.

The fact that Thomas Nock Martin have survived depressions, recessions and world wars prove that they are the team to trust.
