Catholic Cemetery Association Survey - January 2004


We at the Catholic Cemetery Association are always interested in the thoughts and opinions of all those we serve. As we continue our expansion and beautification programs at our cemeteries in, Malden, Lynn, Salem, Beverly, Haverhill, Marblehead, Stoneham, Winchester, Watertown and Waltham, it is important for us to provide families we serve with a number of options that will fit their specific needs. For us to accomplish this, we are asking for your help. We have set up this short survey in order to assist us in understanding your needs. If you would be so kind as to fill out this survey. Your help in this matter would be beneficial to us, at the Catholic Cemetery Association, as we plan for the future. Thank you in advance for your timely response. Again, let me stress your input is critical to our decision making process regarding the operation of our cemeteries. I want to thank you again for the help you have given us by filling out this survey.
