Chris started with McCartney Family Funerals early in 2021 working as a funeral operation assistant, a role that encompasses everything from transfers and operating multimedia at services to processing paperwork and assisting the mortician as required.
Chris’ caring and empathetic nature are among his greatest strengths, and he takes great comfort and satisfaction knowing he is helping families with the healing process after profound loss, either at the service, or behind the scenes.
Having experienced loss in his own family, Chris saw joining the funeral industry as an opportunity to help others who are experiencing grief and he takes pride in reassuring families that their loved ones are being treated with and respect right from the initial transfer into care to the final burial or cremation.
In Chris’ own words: “Care is at the heart of our role. It is my greatest honour to treat every person in our care as if they were my own family member,”
