Defending Set Pieces?

My team struggles when defending set pieces. I have now allocated every player a role, whether that be marking, on the posts, on the edge of the area or whatever, but they lose their men quite quickly at times and we get punished! Has anyone got any tips or suggestions on how to improve on this?

We see if the other teams have numbers on there backs and we ask are team to mark a number and to stay with that number til the corner has been taken

Personally for me, I tend to set my players up in an arc from front of the penalty area to the back of the 6yeard - far post. then have every single player attacking the ball regardless of how deep it's delivered.
