Funeral Service Insider’s Annual Compensation and Casket Surveys Now Open

WALL, N.J. – Funeral Service Insider recently opened its annual compensation and casket surveys, and the publication is asking funeral home owners and funeral directors to take some time to fill them out.

“Our Casket Survey and Compensation Survey issues are two of our most popular issues,” said the newsletter’s executive editor, Thomas A. Parmalee. “Given the downturn in the economy, funeral service professionals are especially interested this year to find out how casket sales and pay levels are being affected. The more responses we get, the better.”

While answers from the survey are tabulated to help portray what’s going on in funeral service, no one is quoted by name unless they give the editor their permission.
