Who Am I

My name is Chris Cullen.  I’m the Eastern Suburbs Area Manager of Ian J. Arthur & Sons, Funeral Directors Sydney.

I’ve been working in the funeral industry for over 5 years.  My background is as an Accredited Pastor with the Baptist Churches of NSW & ACT.  During over 21 years of pastoral work I have often worked with grieving families in the preparation and conduct of funeral services.  I still work in a small church, while during the week I am a funeral director.

I am married with 4 adult children.  Sadly, my wife and I experienced the stillborn death of our first child.  This tragic experience led to an involvement with SIDS & Kids NSW (now Red Nose) for about 10 years as volunteer Parent Supporters and After Hours Telephone Supporters.  As a result of our experiences I have a heart for people who are grieving and a desire to provide the highest level of care to families who are going through their own bereavement.
