Burial statistics

Well, I have another question for any JCANA member that might read this post:

Here in St. Louis, several of our Jewish cemeteries observed significant decreases in annual interments between 2008 and 2009. (We’re talking double-digit numbers here!)  Did any of our other members have a similar experience in 2009?  I’d like to hear from any of you, whether your numbers were up or down.

Thanks for pitching in on this matter.
