The survey mines data from funeral home owners throughout the country. It yields key data and analysis, including:

  • New ways funeral homes are presenting caskets to families.
  • The latest casket innovations that families like most.
  • Methods to deal with price shoppers.
  • Information on how Chinese casket companies are changing the marketplace.
  • How to win better discounts from suppliers.
  • And much more!

“Funeral directors nationwide look to our casket survey results every year to determine how to better position their businesses,” said Thomas A. Parmalee, editor of Funeral Service Insider. “We need as many responses as we can get to provide as much data, analysis and information as possible. Along with our Compensation Survey, our annual Casket Survey is always one of our most popular issues.”

The Casket Survey will be open for the next few months. Results will be compiled and published in a future issue of Funeral Service Insider.

Even if you are not a Funeral Service Insider subscriber, you can receive a free copy of the Casket Survey as long as you complete the survey. Just provide your email address at the end of the survey to receive the report by electronic mail when it’s published.
