What seems to be the reason for the way Cratchit emphasizes that Marley is dead at the start of the scene. Why does he say that this piece of information is going to be of value to the story?

I think this sets us up for the actual haunting of Scrooge. It gives us context into Scrooge's partnership with Marley and It foreshadows the ghost of Marley's visit to Scrooge's room. This sets off the beginning of Scrooge's personal transformation.
