I recently ran a small survey to try and get an idea of what sort of management plans "cemeterians" have for their sites.  I wasn't looking for great detail, just an indication. Here are the results:

Respondents:

If there's any interest the survey could be run again but with more detailed questions and determining the correlation between administrative & operationsl structures and plans.
